DOTHAN, Ala. (AP) -- Authorities say a former bail bondsman from Dothan has been indicted in an alleged identity theft scheme.

The U.S. Department of Justice said in a news release that an indictment charging Roderick Neal with conspiracy, wire fraud and aggravated identity theft was unsealed Friday. It was not immediately clear whether he had a lawyer.

The indictment says Neal stole personal identifying information and gave it to another person. That person gave it to a third person whom prosecutors say used the identities to file fraudulent tax returns with the Internal Revenue Service and claimed refunds.

The conspiracy charge carries a maximum of 10 years in prison, while wire fraud charge carries a maximum of 20 years in prison and aggravated identity theft carries a maximum of two years in prison.
