MT: Gateway woman pleads guilty to fraud, ID theft

A Gallatin Gateway woman pleaded guilty in federal court last week to credit card fraud and aggravated identity theft.

Erin Lee Stewart, 50, faces a possible 10 years in prison and three years probation for stealing at least five people’s identities and defrauding them of more than $6,800, according to a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

She will also serve a mandatory two-year prison sentence for aggravated identity theft.

As a restaurant manager at Big Sky Resort in 2007 and 2008, Stewart had access to her employees’ personal information and used that data to apply for several credit cards, the statement said.
