Kristine Ogandzhanyan was convicted in a bench trial before Judge David Carter on Wednesday. Ogandzhanyan is the wife of a key player in what is being called one of the biggest ID theft cases in the state.
The scam began by the defendants approached low-paid employees of call centers for account information. The defendants forged checks with this information and stole at least $8 million from victims in Orange County, Los Angeles County and San Bernardino County. Officials even say victims were from Texas, Arizona and Nevada.
All defendants face 30 years in federal prison.
