Woman sentenced for tax fraud


A woman who used stolen identities to file fraudulent income tax documents was sentenced Wednesday to nearly four years in prison.

Tracy Dupree pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Augusta last fall, admitting her role in defrauding the Internal Revenue Service.

Judge J. Randal Hall sentenced Dupree to 46 months in prison. He also ordered her to repay $84,796 in restitution, but noted her financial situation means full restitution is unlikely. Dupree will have three years on supervised release once she completes the prison term.
