California woman sentenced to 9 years for suburban identity theft scheme
A California woman was sentenced to nine years in prison Oct. 15 for stealing more than $184,000 from as many as a dozen people through an identity theft scheme in the Chicago area, according to a news release from the DuPage County State's Attorney's Office.
Pamela Keane, 48, of California, entered a blind plea of guilty to one count of continuing a financial crimes enterprise, one count of forgery and one count of possession of a counterfeit credit card on July 30, the release said.
To withdraw money from accounts at banks in Glen Ellyn, Lombard and Wheaton, Keane presented a fake California driver's license with the name of a victim and her photograph to access that person's account, according to the release.
