For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Arizona

     FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. – Yesterday, Nicole Leigh Davis, 35, of Golden Valley, Ariz., was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Susan R. Bolton to 12 months in federal prison to be followed by three years of supervised release.  Davis previously pleaded guilty to one count of felony possession of stolen mail. 

     The investigation was initiated by the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office, which was investigating a stolen travel trailer in which Davis was living.  Davis was found to be in possession of over 300 pieces of stolen mail, including numerous stolen credit cards, identification cards, and Social Security cards. 

     “Unscrupulous people like Ms. Davis, who steal the identities of others and use them for personal gain, cause not only financial loss but also great inconvenience to innocent people in the community. We will do all we can under the law to insure that such people are held accountable as was Ms. Davis,” stated United States Attorney, John Leonardo. 

     "This sentence should serve as a strong deterrent to others who would consider stealing another's identity," said Inspector in Charge Keith Fixel.  "The U.S. Postal Inspection Service remains dedicated to our mission of protecting our nation's mail system from criminal misuse."  

     The investigation in this case was conducted by the United States Postal Inspection Service and the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office.  The prosecution was handled by the Flagstaff U.S. Attorney’s Office.
