JACKSON, Ms. (AP) - A Clinton woman has been sentenced to serve five years in prison after pleading guilty to identity theft and other crimes.

Attorney General Jim Hood says 25-year-old Emily Kristen McLellan-Bilbo pleaded guilty in Hinds County Circuit Court.

Bilbo was sentenced to 10 years for identity theft with five suspended and four years post release supervision. She was also ordered to pay $13,825 in restitution.

Bilbo also received five years for felonious use of a Social Security number and five years for uttering a counterfeit instrument. All sentences are to run concurrently.

Hood says Bilbo worked as a receptionist at Audibel in Jackson where she obtained credit card and other personal identifying information of customers. She then used the information to purchase more than $13,000 in goods, cash, and services.
