Georgia woman sentenced to 8 years in prison for mail fraud charge in stolen vehicle title scheme
MONROE, La. – United States Attorney David C. Joseph announced that a Georgia woman was sentenced last week to 96 months in prison for her role in a scheme to illegally obtain Louisiana titles for stolen vehicles.
Quinetta Grant, 45, of Suwanee, Georgia, was sentenced Tuesday by U.S. District Judge S. Maurice Hicks Jr. on one count of mail fraud. She was also sentenced to three years of supervised release and was ordered to pay $300,000 restitution. According to the October 25, 2016 guilty plea, Grant sent a title application and supporting documents for a stolen vehicle in May of 2015 to a resident in Monroe who then submitted the documents to an Office of Motor Vehicles authorized automobile title processor in West Monroe, Louisiana. The title processor was a private business contracted to work with the Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles to process title applications.
The FBI conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Earl M. Campbell prosecuted the case.
