Cranberry woman sent to prison for stealing parents' identities

Tuesday, Nov. 19, 2013, 12:00 p.m.

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.

Meredith L. Shuster, 36, pleaded guilty in April to bank and mail fraud.

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