A Kansas City woman’s four-month spree of identity theft and fraud led Monday to a five-year, six-month federal prison sentence.
Federal prosecutors said that 25-year-old Deshonda Latrice Anderson used a variety of schemes last year to victimize 39 businesses, financial institutions and individuals. Using false names and information, she was able to lease several cars, rent apartments and office space for a sham business and open several bank accounts, prosecutors said.
Anderson was sentenced Monday in U.S. District Court in Kansas City for mail fraud and aggravated identity theft. She was also ordered to pay victims more than $39,000 in restitution.
