A federal grand jury indicted an IRS employee Monday for wire fraud and aggravated identity theft, officials announced this week, according to officials.
The indictment alleges that between September 2012 and April 2013, Parker stole personal information, which she then used to file tax returns seeking refunds in the names of other individuals.
Parker allegedly directed the fraudulently obtained refunds into nominee bank accounts and used some of those funds to purchase money orders.
An indictment merely alleges that crimes have been committed. The defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
If Parker is convicted, she is facing up to 20 years in prison. Parker is presumed innocent unless proven guilty.
