The third person involved in a group that stole identities and filed false returns has pleaded guilty in Alabama to conspiring to defraud the United States.
According to the indictment and other court records, Eric Bernard Caldwell, of Montgomery County, Ala., was part of a conspiracy to file false federal tax returns using stolen identities. Caldwell would provide identity information to co-conspirator Ora Mae Adamson, who would file the returns in exchange for a portion of the illicit refunds generated by the false tax returns. In all, the conspiracy defrauded the United States of $621,738.
Adamson pleaded guilty to conspiracy and identity theft charges and was sentenced to 46 months in prison. Another co-conspirator, Jeffrey Leon Ceaser, also pleaded guilty to conspiracy and identity theft charges and was sentenced to 36 months in prison.
