Ora Mae Adamson Sentenced to 46 Months in Prison for Tax Fraud and Identity Theft


WASHINGTON – Ora Mae Adamson, a resident of Montgomery County, Ala., was sentenced to 46 months in prison, the Justice Department and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) announced today.

According to court documents, between March 2009 and September 2009, Adamson conspired with others to defraud the United States by filing 158 false federal income tax returns. As part of the scheme, Adamson and her co-conspirators fraudulently obtained the names and Social Security numbers of individuals. Adamson would then file false tax returns in these individuals’ names, without their authorization. The tax returns falsely claimed the first-time homebuyer’s credit and fuel tax credit. The refunds from the false returns were deposited into bank accounts controlled by Adamson and other co-conspirators.

In all, the conspiracy defrauded the United States of $621,738. One of Adamson’s co-conspirators, Jeffery Ceaser, was sentenced to 36 months in prison on March 2, 2011.

In addition to 46 months in prison, Adamson was also ordered to pay $621,738.41 in restitution to the United States.
