Stone Mountain Woman Sentenced for Identity Theft

Cora Ford was convicted of filing false tax returns for personal gain using the identities of the poor.

Cora Cadia Ford, of Stone Mountain, was sentenced Friday to nine years in prison for mail fraud, aggravated identity theft, and filing false claims with the Government.

Ford, 55, was found guilty by a jury on Sept. 20. She was ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $101,015 and will also have three years of supervised release.

According to United States Attorney Sally Yates, Ford filed false tax returns with the IRS, using the names and social security numbers of the poor, homeless and disabled.

One victim testified Ford's crimes had ruined her life after her disability benefits were reduced to $27 per month, preventing her from buying her medications. “(Ford's) crimes left people who were already disadvantaged to deal with yet another obstacle in their lives," Yates said in a statement.
