SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Michelle Louise Travis, 53, of Suisun City, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Kimberly J. Mueller to two years and three months in prison for conspiracy to commit wire fraud and aggravated identity theft, U.S. Attorney McGregor W. Scott announced.
According to court documents, in 2013, Travis and co-defendant Pamela Dawn Pierson used identity theft victims’ personal identifying information to file fraudulent tax returns in order to obtain income tax refunds to which they were not entitled. As part of their scheme, Travis and Pierson obtained and shared lists of personal identifying information, which included identity theft victims’ names and social security numbers. Travis and Pierson submitted a total of $66,022 in fraudulent claims to the Internal Revenue Service.
This case was the product of an investigation by the IRS Criminal Investigation, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Fairfield Police Department. Assistant U.S. Attorney Brian A. Fogerty prosecuted the case.
On March 14, 2018, Judge Mueller sentenced Pierson to two years and three months in prison.
