A Little Rock woman has been sentenced to four years in federal prison for bank fraud, identity theft, and credit-card fraud, the U.S. attorney for Western District of Arkansas said Friday.
Latori Sanders, 34, was charged with two counts of bank fraud, four counts of identity theft and one count of credit-card fraud, and pleaded guilty to those charges in November. She was originally indicted on a single count in June 2011.
Sanders was charged after records showed she had cashed six checks, totaling $3,722.43, as well as using Social Security numbers of numerous victims to open three credit cards and apply for electricity service. Sanders also used another person's identity to open a credit card to pay a fine in Clark County District Court, U.S. Attorney Conner Eldridge said in a statement.
In October 2010, Sanders also obtained several checks and a driver's license from a neighbor, Eldridge said. After forging the neighbor's signature, she made $5,392.80 worth of purchases, according to records.
The sentence handed down in Hot Springs federal court.
