U.S. Attorney George Beck said Antoinette Djonret received the sentence Friday in Montgomery. She pleaded guilty in October to conspiracy, aggravated identity theft, and filing false tax returns.

 

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- A federal judge has ordered a Montgomery woman to spend 12 years in prison and pay nearly $1.3 million in restitution for a massive tax fraud scheme using stolen identities.

Court documents say Djonret orchestrated a scheme with others to file more than 1,000 false tax returns and established an elaborate network to launder the refund money. The documents say she obtained stolen identities from multiple sources, including state government databases.

The U.S. attorney said three co-conspirators have pleaded guilty and are awaiting sentencing.
