Ana Ceballas reports:

Kristin Nyunt, the ex-wife of a former Pacific Grove police commander, was sentenced to eight years and four months in prison Tuesday for fraud, identity theft and several other charges.

Upon reviewing “tens of thousands of emails and text messages” and financial documents, the FBI and the Monterey County District Attorney’s Office found Nyunt and her husband at the time, John Nyunt, worked together to access secure police emails and police online databases to get personal identifying information about potential victims.

Nyunt’s husband gave her access to secure information including social security numbers, addresses and bank account numbers, according to the District Attorney’s Office. This information was used to commit dozens of criminal identity thefts.
