Kamarian Millender, a laboratory technician formerly employed at Flowers Hospital in Dothan, Ala., has been fined and sentenced to two years in prison for his role in an identity theft ring.
According to the U.S. Department of Justice, Millender aided in the filing of more than 100 false federal tax returns using identifying information stolen from patient records. More than 70 patients were victimized and the ring attempted to get $536, 028 in IRS refunds, netting a total of about $18, 915.
Millender in July pled guilty to one count of aggravated identity theft. The Dothan Eagle reports he recently tried to withdraw the guilty plea but the court rejected the request. In addition to prison time, he also was ordered to pay restitution of the $18,915 in refunds that were received.
