Kiandra Haywood pleads guilty in identity theft ring; 8th person to plead in case
An eighth person pleaded guilty Wednesday to theft charges in connection with a four-year credit card and identity theft scheme.
Prosecutors say that 36-year-old Kiandra Haywood of Washington, D.C. pleaded guilty to first-degree theft as part of the scheme that victimized more than 179 corporate and individual victims between 2006 and 2010.
Seven others previously pleaded guilty to federal charges in this case.
Evidence presented by prosecutors alleged that Haywood was involved in fraudulent use of a credit card to make car payments. Members of the ring regularly used victim's credit cards and bank accounts to make purchases and pay bills.
Haywood faces up to 10 years in prison and a $5,000 fine. She will be sentenced in August.
