Albuquerque Man Sentenced to Prison for Federal Mail Fraud and Identity Theft
ALBUQUERQUE – Jeremy Boucher, 28, of Albuquerque, N.M., was sentenced this morning to 39 months in federal prison followed by three years of supervised release for his mail fraud and identity theft convictions. Boucher was also ordered to pay restitution to the victims of his crimes.
Boucher was arrested on Nov. 25, 2014, on a criminal complaint charging him with mail theft and possession of stolen mail from Dec. 2013 through Oct. 2014, in Bernalillo County, N.M. The complaint alleged that on Nov. 14, 2014, U.S. Postal Inspectors and the Albuquerque Police Department executed a search warrant on Boucher’s residence where they uncovered large amounts of stolen mail, including financial documents, dating back to Dec. 2013.
Boucher was subsequently charged in a four-count indictment on Jan. 8, 2015. Counts 1 and 2 charged Boucher with mail theft from Nov. 2013 through Oct. 2014. Count 3 charged Boucher with an attempt to execute a scheme to obtain money by false pretenses through the use of another person’s bank accounts, and Count 4 charged Boucher with identity theft. All offenses charged occurred in Bernalillo County.
On March 27, 2015, Boucher pled guilty to the four-count indictment without the benefit of a plea agreement.
This case was investigated by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and the Albuquerque Police Department and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Paul Mysliwiec.
