A former employee of a Richmond tax preparation company is going to prison for using clients' personal identifying information to open credit accounts.
U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson sentenced Alicia Cassandra Gambrell to three years and three months in prison Thursday. The 38-year-old Richmond woman also was ordered to pay nearly $61,000 in restitution.
According to court documents, Gambrell worked at The Tax Complex for about three months in 2004. She pleaded guilty to bank fraud and aggravated identity theft charges in March.
