Sentenced to 36 months’ imprisonment following scourge of identity theft


Indianapolis – Josh J. Minkler, the United States Attorney, announced today a 36 month sentence of imprisonment for defendant Selina Norman, 35, following her guilty pleas to bank fraud, possession of stolen mail, and aggravated identity theft.  She was sentenced by U.S. District Judge William T. Lawrence.  The matter was investigated jointly by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and the Cumberland Police Department with assistance from security officers employed by commercial establishments in the district affected by the charged activity.

Norman was apprehended in January 2017, and later charged following an investigation that unearthed a scourge of identity theft activity.  She stole checks from the U.S. mail, edited the checks and cashed them at various commercial entities to purchase gift cards.  Recently, United States Attorney Josh J. Minkler announced the priorities for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Southern District of Indiana to include aggressively prosecuting identity thieves and fraudsters whose criminal conduct often affect innocent citizens for years. 

“Identity Theft strips innocent citizens of tangible and intangible securities.  This criminal activity and the individuals who chose to partake will be aggressively pursued in this district and across the country in an effort to address this national epidemic,” said Minkler.

According to Assistant U.S. Attorney Cynthia J. Ridgeway who prosecuted this case for the government, Norman must serve three years of supervised release after her sentence.
