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.

Officials even say victims were from Texas, Arizona and Nevada.

All defendants face 30 years in federal prison.
