Pennsylvania man sentenced for ID theft
Charles D. Taylor, 47, of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, was sentenced by United States District Judge John T. Copenhaver, Jr. to two years imprisonment and ordered to pay over $29,000 in restitution for aggravated identity theft. Taylor pled guilty in June 2009, admitting that while he was incarcerated in Pennsylvania, he obtained personal identifying information of prison inmates. After his release from prison, Taylor used the personal information to open bank accounts in West Virginia, order checks and had them delivered to a UPS store mailbox. He subsequently passed checks totaling approximately $29,000 to merchants in and around West Virginia and Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
