Jailed for Identity Theft

Porscha Kyles, 25, a former court clerk in Broward County, Florida, was sentenced to three years in prison, to be followed by two years of supervised release and $57,328 in restitution, for the theft of more than 100 people's identities.

 

She previously pled guilty to aggravated identity theft and to one count of conspiracy to possess 15 or more unauthorized access devices.

According to court documents, Kyles worked as a clerk of court in Broward County from October 2011 to February 2012. During that time, she had access to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicle Driver and Vehicle Information Database (DAVID).

 

She used that access to copy more than 100 people's names, birthdates and Social Security numbers, which she sold to a co-conspirator. The stolen information was then used to file fraudulent tax returns seeking refunds.

Porscha Kyles, of Davie, worked for the Broward Clerk's office from April 2008 until May 2012, when supervisors noticed irregular activity with her use of a database of driver's license information, (DAVID).

 

She worked at the public counter in the traffic and misdemeanor division at the courthouse in downtown Fort Lauderdale.

 

According to federal prosecutors, she used her position to access the personal information of drivers, including Social Security numbers and dates of birth, which she would then sell to a man who intended to use the data in a tax refund scheme.

 

Prosecutors say she sold the information of more than 100 Florida drivers.

At the time of her arrest last July, Broward Clerk of Courts Howard Forman said computer records showed Kyles searching for names at a pace that was too rapid for someone who was dealing with customers at her window one at a time. Some of the searches were mere seconds apart, and on several occasions she appeared to be searching for people who shared a last name or people whose names began with a particular letter.

 

Kyles pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy, for which she was sentenced to a year and a day in prison, and one count of aggravated identity theft, for which she was sentenced to two years. Kyles will also serve two years of probation and will have to pay $57,328 in restitution.

 

Five other charges, including computer fraud and four identity theft charges, were dismissed as part of the plea deal, which was reached in October.

Kyles, who earned $25,387 a year, was hired in 2007, but quit after a few hours because of unspecified personal issues, Forman said. She was re-hired in April 2008 and dismissed on May 14, 2012, he said.

 

At least three times between October 2011 and March 2012, Kyles fraudulently used her work computer to steal the names, dates of birth, Social Security numbers and other personal information of drivers, which she then sold to someone else who used them to file income tax returns, according to the indictment.

 

"We dismissed her because people can't do that and work for the clerk's office," Forman said. "Identity theft is a national epidemic and it is fortunate we caught her."

 

Court records did not specify how many identities were stolen and Forman said he did not know.
