In February deputies recieved a complaint that Jamie Sue Bledsoe may have used the name of her infant to open an account with Bright House Networks, a cable company, according to a news release from the Hernando County Sheriff's Office.
An investigation by detectives showed that the cable account had indeed been opened at Bledsoe's address in Brooksville. Copies of the installation work order that were signed when the equipment had been installed at the home revealed that Bledsoe had actually signed the infant’s name as the customer's signature as well as provided her driver license number on the form as verification, the release stated.
Too bad the technician failed to recognize that the signature and the name on the driver's licenese wasn't a match.
Post Miranda, Bledsoe, 29, 'fessed up to using her baby's name to open the account because she already had an outstanding bill with Bright House Networks and was unable to open an account in her own name, according to the Sheriff's Office.
Bledsoe is charged with one count of Identity Theft of a Juvenile.
