Fmr. Miami Dade College Employee Sentenced In ID Theft Case

Giovanna Maselli reports:

 A federal judge sentenced a former Miami Dade College employee in connection to an identity tax fraud scheme in South Florida.

A judge sentenced Michelson Jeancy, 35, of Miami to 36 months in prison after pleading guilty to one count of wire fraud.

FBI officials said he worked at the college as a student services assistant which means he had access to student records that had their personal identification. Using that information, court documents say, Jeancy and his accomplices filed fraudulent tax returns.

Jeancy had been indicted in April.
