Trial in massive ID theft case postponed
AP reports that the trial for nine people from Alabama and Georgia accused in a massive identity theft case has been postponed at the joint request of the prosecution and defense.
The nine are accused of stealing IDs from the Alabama Department of Corrections, a credit card processing center in Columbus, Georgia, and the military hospital at Fort Benning. They are accused of using 7,000 stolen IDs to file $20 million in fraudulent tax returns. They have pleaded not guilty.
