ID thief receives 30 months in prison

A California woman was sentenced late last week to 2 1/2 years in federal prison after pleading guilty earlier this year to charges of access device fraud, according to a news release from the U.S. Department of Justice. Stephanie Fahlgren, 33, of Sacramento accessed the database of a national life insurance company and obtained the personal and financial information of more than 114 individuals. Using the stolen information, Fahlgren opened lines of credit and credit cards in victims' names and made purchases without their consent. Another court appearance is scheduled for July 29, when a judge will determine the amount of restitution owed to the victims. — AM
