Toledo Woman Indicted
Aan indictment was filed charging Jewel A. Washington, 50, of Toledo, with two counts of unauthorized access of a computer for private financial gain and one count of unauthorized disclosure of tax return information, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.
If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after reviewing factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, and the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation. In all cases, the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.
The investigating agency in this case is the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, Detroit, Michigan. The case is being handled by Assistant United States Attorney Noah P. Hood.
An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
