San Francisco Woman Gets 50 Months In Prison For Identity Theft

A San Francisco woman who used other people's identities to buy nearly 50-thousand dollars worth of goods will spend 50 months in prison.

Myra Minks pleaded guilty in 2004 to one count of identity theft, plus charges of aiding and abetting.

She was on the lam for seven months after she failed to appear at a sentencing hearing in July 2005. She was arrested again in Oakland in February 2006 and has been in custody ever since.

Minks admitted that she had used fake driver's licenses, Social Security cards and credit cards to go shopping.

Yesterday a federal court judge sentenced her to 50 months in jail.

She will also have to pay 49-thousand dollars in restitution to 56 companies.
