Mountain Home woman convicted of wire fraud

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

A Mountain Home woman was sentenced to two years of probation for wire fraud during a hearing in U.S. District Court on Dec. 11

Gwynn Brown, 33, was also ordered to complete 60 hours of community service by U.S. District Judge Edward J. Lodge.

Prior to sentencing, Brown had already paid $15,580 in restitution. She was arraigned and pleaded guilty to a single count information Oct. 2.

According to the plea agreement, Brown made six fraudulent on-line payments in July and August 2011 to her Military Star Card -- a credit card provided by the Department of Defense to military members and their families. The fraudulent payments totaled $11,124.71. She then used the fraudulently obtained credit to make purchases at the Mountain Home Air Force Base Exchange.

The case was investigated by special agents from the Air Force Office of Special Investigations.
