3 Montgomery men convicted in tax fraud scheme

Posted: Updated:

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Federal prosecutors say three Montgomery men have pleaded guilty to conspiracy and aggravated identity theft in a tax fraud scheme.

U.S. Attorney's officials in Montgomery said in a statement Thursday that Cruz Castillo Burnett, Jacorey Giddens and Rodrickus Howard each pleaded guilty to the charges within the past week.

Prosecutors say the three stole personal information including Social Security numbers to file more than 500 fraudulent tax returns. Prosecutors say the men deposited the tax returns onto prepaid debit cards in the victims' names.

Officials say the men each face a maximum of 10 years in prison on the conspiracy charge and a mandatory sentence of two years in prison for the identity theft charge.
