Woman gets 25-month term for stealing patient's identification

August 18, 2007

A 25-year-old former hospital employee was sentenced yesterday to more than two years in federal prison for bank fraud and aggravated identity theft after stealing confidential personal information from a patient and others, the U.S. attorney's office said.

Nicole Jenise Stevenson of Baltimore admitted to taking a patient's information and Social Security number while working at Harbor Hospital. She used the information to obtain lines of credit to buy items worth more than $61,000. Separately, Stevenson also fraudulently used other people's personal information to secure loans for seven vehicles, according to federal prosecutors.

In addition to the 25-month prison sentence, U.S. District Judge Richard D. Bennett sentenced Stevenson to seven months of home detention and three years of supervised release, and ordered her to pay more than $123,000 in restitution, prosecutors said.
