By Alabama News Network

Another person has pleaded guilty to using the stolen identities of Alabama inmates to file fraudulent tax returns.

Harvey James of Birmingham had pleaded guilty to one count of mail fraud and one count of aggravated identity theft. Court documents show Harvey obtained stolen identities of Alabama inmates and then worked with his sister, Jacqueline Slaton, and others to file false federal and state tax returns. He also worked with a Montgomery mail carrier, Vernon Harrison, to have some of the refunds delivered to addresses on Harrison's route, where Harrison obtained them for him.

 

Slaton pleaded guilty in 2012 and got a nearly six-year sentence. Harrison was convicted in July and will be sentenced Thursday.

James faces sentencing February 19.
