Former Hospital Employee Convicted for Aggravated Identity Theft
IDENTITY THEFT—U.S.May 7, 2010
A former employee of an Alabama hospital has been sentenced to two years and one day in federal prison for wire fraud and stealing the identities of patients, according to a Department of Justice press release. Adrienne Denise Stovall, 30, pled guilty in January to one count of wire fraud and one count of aggravated identity theft, which carries a mandatory sentence of two years. Stovall worked at Montgomery's Baptist Hospital from August 2006 to early 2007. Her position gave her access to the hospital's computer system, containing confidential information including patient names, dates of birth and Social Security numbers. Stovall used the information to apply for credit and credit cards.
