Man sentenced to prison on identity theft scheme charges

ATLANTA (AP) — Prosecutors say a Georgia man has been sentenced to 19 years and six months to prison for identity theft schemes that stole more than $2 million.

U.S. Attorney John Horn said in an email Friday that 37-year-old Kamali Rives was sentenced to prison on fraud and identity theft charges. Horn says Rives along with co-conspirators including 34-year-old Rashon Bohannon, 36-year-old Jimia Fannin and 31-year-old Ashley Posey ran multiple fraud and identity theft schemes dating back to at least 2010.

Horn says Rives and 34-year-old Bohannon maintained hundreds of files that contained profiles of victims' names, dates of birth and social security numbers. The information was used to open bank accounts, cash checks, take out loans, manufacture credit cards and make credit purchases.

Bohannon, Fannin and Posey are scheduled for sentencing March 9.
