Ex-officer sentenced in identity theft

Montgomery Advertiser, September 29, 2011

A former Montgomery Police Department officer was sentenced to 48 months in federal prison with two years of supervised release Wednesday, according to U.S. Attorney George Beck. Sgt. Bradley Howard Pemberton, 41, was convicted in June of federal wire fraud and identity theft charges. Pemberton stole his cousin’s identity by improperly accessing a law enforcement database. He then used that information to apply for and obtain a credit card in his cousin’s name, which Pemberton used for his personal use, according to a Department of Justice news release. Pemberton also was convicted of aggravated identity theft, which carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 24 months in prison as part of the 48-month sentence, according to the release. http://www.montgomeryadvertiser.com/article/20110929/NEWS02/109290360/Ex-officer-sentenced-identity-theft
