MACON, Ga. (AP) - A middle Georgia woman has pleaded guilty to conspiracy and identity theft after trying to sell stolen personal information to an undercover federal agent.
Sources report Rhonda Everett pleaded guilty Thursday in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Georgia. Authorities say Everett became the target of an investigation in 2012 after federal authorities were alerted to a group of people in Macon stealing identities and using the information to file fraudulent tax refunds.
Officials say Everett was caught in a sting when she gave a Secret Service agent stolen personal information of 35 Salvation Army clients in exchange for $200.
She has agreed to pay $23,723 in restitution and is scheduled to be sentenced July 26.
