Guam – May Quichocho Perez has been sentenced to 2 years in prison after she pleaded guilty to aggravated identity theft.
District Court Judge Francis Tydingco-Gatewood on Wednesday also sentenced Perez to 1-year of supervised release and required her to pay restitution.
Her sentencing follows the guilty plea she entered last February to a charge of aggravated identity theft. Perez admitted that between September 13 and September 25 of last year, she used a lost Bank of Hawaii VISA/ATM card in 56 separate transactions to rack up $7,578.56 in charges on someone else’s account.
According to a release from U.S. Attorney Alicia Limtiaco, Perez had prior convictions in Superior Court on multiple charges of forgery and theft.
The U.S. Secret Service investigated the case which was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Marivic David.
