Woodville woman pleads guilty to fraud

JACKSON (AP) — A Woodville woman has pleaded guilty to using a stolen credit card provided by her cousin who was a Natchez police officer.

The U.S. Justice Department says 34-year-old Patricia A. Wilson pleaded guilty Thursday to conspiring to commit identity theft, credit card fraud and bank fraud.

Sentencing hasn’t been set.

Federal prosecutors say Wilson acknowledged that on May 23, 2009, her cousin gave her a credit card, asked her to buy beer for a party and told her she could buy something for herself. Prosecutors say Wilson tried to use the card in Vidalia and it was declined because it had been reported stolen.

The U.S. attorney’s office isn’t releasing the cousin’s name or saying whether he’s still a police officer.

Natchez Police Chief Mike Mullins also declined to release the cousin’s name and status with the department Friday.

“There is an active investigation by the FBI, and I can’t comment on the investigation,” Mullins said.
