Identity thief sentenced in MIssissippi

An identity thief was sentenced to multiple prison terms yesterday in Marion County, Mississippi. Here's the story from Jackson's WLBT:

"A judge sentences a Marion County woman to multiple prison terms. 58-year-old Pamela Loizzo of Foxworth, Mississippi entered a guilty plea Monday to one count identity theft and one count of fraudulent use of identity.

Marion County Circuit Judge Prentiss Harrell sentenced Loizzo to serve ten years in the custody of the Mississippi Department of Corrections with three years suspended. She also received three years of post release supervision and must pay a $1,000 fine, $500 to the Crime Victim's Assistance Fund, $1,000 to the Marion County Public Defense Fund, all court costs, and $3,000 in restitution.

Loizzo was also sentenced to serve five years on the fraudulent use of identity charge to run conconcurrent with the identity theft sentence."

From what I understand, Loizzo was a maid that stole her employer's identity, using it to open several credit cards. You really have to be careful who you let in your house.
