Casa Grande woman gets 3 years for tax fraud

TUCSON, Ariz. — A Casa Grande woman has been sentenced to more than three
years in prison and ordered to pay $403,000 in restitution in a tax fraud case.

Prosecutors said 36-year-old Corleen Ladawn Thompson received a 37-month
sentence Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Tucson.

She must serve three years of supervised release after completing her prison
term.

Thompson pleaded guilty last November to conspiracy to defraud the government
by way of false claims.

Prosecutors said Thompson admitted to offering money to people whose identities
were used to file fraudulent tax returns for refunds from March 2010 to January
2012.

They said some of the identity information used by Thompson came from prison
inmates.

Authorities said at least 150 false federal income tax returns were filed,
claiming more than $548,000 in refunds.
