Indianola woman convicted in prison ministry fraud sentenced to 4 years in prison

| May 19, 2012

An Indianola woman who used identity information of around 48 volunteers of a prison ministry group to open credit accounts has been sentenced to four years in federal prison.

Shelley Ann Bridges, 37, was convicted in January on one count of aggravated identity theft and one count of credit card fraud. In addition to the prison sentence, Bridges will be required to serve a three-year supervised release term and pay $100 to the Crime Victims Fund, according to a news release.

She’ll also be required to pay $8,994.38 in restitution.

While Bridges was in prison previously, she rose to hold a leadership role in the Women at the Well United Methodist congregation at the Iowa Correctional Institute for Women in Mitchellville. The congregation is made up of inmates in the prison.
