A Cranberry woman who used her parents' identities to obtain $729,000 in student loans from private lenders will spend one year and three months in prison, a federal judge ruled Monday.

U.S. District Judge Mark Hornak also sentenced Shuster to five years on probation and ordered her to pay $632,613.75 in restitution.
