Nancy Allison Mccall Sentenced in U.S. District Cour
The United States Attorney's Office announced that during a federal court session in Great Falls, on May 24, 2011, before U.S. District Judge Sam E. Haddon, NANCY ALLISON McCALL, a 60-year-old resident of Florida, appeared for sentencing. McCALL was sentenced to a term of:
Prison: 51 months, consecutive to a Florida state conviction
Special Assessment: $200
Supervised Release: 5 years
McCALL was sentenced in connection with her guilty plea to credit union fraud and aggravated identity theft.
In an Offer of Proof filed by Assistant U.S. Attorney Carl E. Rostad, the government stated it would have proved at trial the following:
On August 10, 2009, McCALL, using the name Allison Hickman, became a member of the 1st Liberty Federal Credit Union and processed a car loan through indirect lending in the amount of $17,911 for a 2004 Mini Cooper in Great Falls. The loan was approved and the car was purchased by McCALL.
A review of the credit application with 1st Liberty Federal Credit Union shows that McCALL utilized a Social Security number that was issued to her mother rather than her own. This fact is supported by extensive documentation. In addition, a search by the credit union revealed five additional Social Security numbers utilized by McCALL. A representative of 1st Liberty would have testified that had they known that the Social Security number did not belong to McCALL, the loan would not have been approved.
On October 24, 2009, McCALL presented a money order in the amount of $875 to 1st Liberty Federal Credit Union, of which she applied $800.58 to the car loan. On November 2, 2009, the money order was returned as "Altered/Fictitious."
On October 26, 2009, McCALL brought in a second money order. The teller that handled this transaction determined the money order to be counterfeit and refused to negotiate it.
The car was repossessed by 1st Liberty Federal Credit Union.
Because there is no parole in the federal system, the "truth in sentencing" guidelines mandate that McCALL will likely serve all of the time imposed by the court. In the federal system, McCALL does have the opportunity to earn a sentence reduction for "good behavior." However, this reduction will not exceed 15% of the overall sentence.
The investigation was conducted by the U.S. Secret Service.
