West Sacramento residents Hilda Solorio, 42, and Jose Cisneros, 34, each pleaded no contest to one count of felony welfare fraud. The plea agreement requires them to pay $16,617 in restitution for food stamp and cash aid benefits they illegally received, according to the news release.

In the third case, Rocklin residents Nicole Wilson, 38, and Michael Wilson, 46, each pleaded no contest to one count of misdemeanor welfare fraud.
