NY: Ringleader In Orange County Bank Fraud And Identity-Theft Scheme

There’s an update to a case noted previously on this site.

Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman today announced the sentencing of ringleader Tyrone “Reece” Lee, 29, for running an identity-theft ring that stole over $457,000 from customers of Wachovia Bank (now Wells Fargo) in Newburgh, N.Y.   In February, following a trial in Orange County Court, the jury convicted Lee of all 15 Counts charged, including Grand Larceny and Identity Theft.  Lee, who is already serving a sentence of 4 ½ to 9 years in prison for operating a similar identity-theft scheme in Westchester County, will now serve an aggregate of  10-20 years in state prison following his sentencing in front of the Honorable Nicholas DeRosa in Orange County.
