Once money was put into accounts, co-conspirators would take out money orders to get the funds.“The sentence imposed by the Court in this case reflects the serious nature of the case and the complex scheme put in place to carry out the crime,” Acting U.S. Attorney John Stuart Bruce, who handled the case, said in a statement. “We’re grateful for the diligent work of the Postal Inspection Service in the investigation of this matter.”
