NORFOLK (AP) A Norfolk woman has been sentenced to 10 years and nine months in prison for fraud schemes including one that stole inmate identities.
50-year-old Teresa Gallop was sentenced April 18 for two fraud schemes she started within a month of being released from prison for another scheme. The Virginian-Pilot reports one new scheme featured a legal services company Gallop created to obtain identity information from inmates. She would then get the inmates to release their personal property to her.
Gallop used her 32-year-old son, Delanio Vick, who was then serving prison sentences on theft to identify and reach inmate victims. Fifty-year-old Gloria Vick was also involved in the scheme. In another scheme, Gallop, 21-year-old Jessie Davis and another man stole, altered or forged checks.
The Vicks and Davis await sentencing.
