By Alabama News Network

A Georgia woman has decided to plead guilty in a large identity theft and tax fraud investigation involving Alabama and Georgia.


Patrice Taylor of Midland, Georgia, has filed papers in federal court in Montgomery saying she wants to change her plea to guilty. U.S. Magistrate Judge Susan Russ Walker has scheduled a hearing Friday to take her plea.


Taylor was one of 10 people from Alabama and Georgia arrested in May. She faces a conspiracy charge accusing her of supplying stolen identifies to others who filed more for more than $20 million in fraudulent tax refunds. Prosecutors say Taylor and another defendant worked at a credit card call center in Columbus, Georgia.


The investigation also involves identities obtained from Fort Benning Hospital in Georgia and from state agencies in Alabama.
