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

PEORIA, Ill. – An Orlando, Florida woman, Jasmine Bradley, 37, of the 4000 block of Miramar Road, pleaded guilty on February 27, 2023, to one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and wire fraud, two counts of mail fraud, five counts of wire fraud, and two counts of aggravated identity theft. Sentencing for Bradley has been scheduled for June 29, 2023, at the U.S. Courthouse in Peoria, Illinois.

In court before U.S. District Judge James Shadid, Bradley admitted that she had participated in a scheme to steal people’s identities, obtain their credit cards, and use those stolen credit cards to obtain pre-paid debt cards that were then used by Bradley and others involved in the scheme. This scheme victimized, among others, a Galesburg woman, which brought the defendant’s scheme into the jurisdiction of the Central District of Illinois. The Government has identified more than ten additional victims of Bradley’s.

Bradley is currently in the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service pending sentencing.

Bradley faces statutory penalties of up to 20 years imprisonment and 5 years of supervised release for the conspiracy count and for each of the mail fraud counts, up to 20 years imprisonment and 3 years of supervised release for each of the wire fraud counts, and a mandatory consecutive 2 years imprisonment and 1 year of supervised release for each of the identity theft charges.

Bradley also faces charges in a separate state case in Florida.

The investigation was conducted by the United States Postal Inspection Service. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Douglas F. McMeyer and Joel Brakken represented the government in the prosecution.
