A Morehead woman was sentenced Friday to 51 months in prison and ordered to pay $6,743.05 in restitution for conspiracy to commit bank fraud, theft of mail and aggravated identity theft.
Sheila Darlene Troxell, 40, pleaded guilty to the charges in June. She would steal mail from residential mail boxes in rural areas, then extract checks and credit cards and discard the rest.
Troxell would then use the checks and credit cards to buy goods and services from retail stores and obtain cash from financial institutions. Troxell also admitted that she used stolen blank checks by filling out the checks, forging the maker's signature, endorsing the stolen checks using actual names, and presenting the checks for cash or for deposit into accounts from which she would withdraw funds.
U.S. District Judge Jennifer B. Coffman sentenced Troxell.
