LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Federal prosecutors say an Arkansas woman has pleaded guilty to aggravated identity theft after being accused of opening credit card accounts with information stolen from the dermatology clinic where she worked.

Mesha White of Little Rock had been named in a 14-count indictment. Prosecutors said White on Wednesday pleaded guilty to one count and agreed to make restitution and serve a two-year prison term. Formal sentencing will occur later.

Investigators say the 34-year-old made thousands of dollars’ worth of purchases that were traced back to a computer at a dermatology clinic. Internal records showed that many transactions occurred when White was the only person in the office.

Prosecutors say packages were sent to a housing complex where White used to live, and that she would pick them up.
