Florida police officer sentenced for identity theft

From the Miami Herald - "A Florida officer has been sentenced to eight years in prison for using official databases in an online identity theft scam.

Jonathan E. Kelly even defrauded students and teachers at Boca Raton-area high schools, where he worked for the Palm Beach County School District Police. He was sentenced Thursday after pleading guilty to more than 20 fraud and theft charges.

Kelly admitted using law enforcement and school records to open up fraudulent credit card and eBay accounts in other people's names. He began the scam a year after being hired by the school district in 2002.

The sentence carries a mandatory minimum of three years in prison. Kelly also received 10 years of probation and 1,000 hours community service."
