An Indianola woman who stole the identities of volunteers at a state prison will spend four years in prison. A U.S. District Court judge sentenced 37-year-old Shelley Ann Bridges to 48 months in prison on one count of aggravated identity theft and one count of credit card fraud.
Court documents say Bridges took personal information from at least 48 volunteers who were participating in a church outreach program at the Mitchellville women’s prison. She used the information in August and September of 2011 to create credit accounts for herself at five financial institutions.
The judge also ordered Bridges to pay nearly $9,000 in restitution.
