A 39-year-old Baltimore woman was sentenced to more than two years in federal prison Friday for bank fraud and identity theft, the Maryland U.S. Attorney's Office announced.

Phyllis Wilson used her positions working at four assisted living facilities in the Baltimore area to steal identifying information from residents and colleagues — including check books and social security numbers — then bought cell phones, clothes and technology services with it, according to prosecutors.

She also used the information to open phony accounts in victims' names and take over existing ones, they said. She was ordered to pay nearly $130,000 in restitution.
