MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A Phenix City woman and former state worker who stole identities from two state agencies has been sentenced to more than seven years in prison and must pay more than $3 million in restitution.

Multiple news outlets report a U.S. District Court Judge sentenced 30-year-old Tamika Floyd to 87 months in prison and three years of supervised release Tuesday. In October 2014, Floyd pleaded guilty to charges of conspiracy to file false claims and aggravated identity theft.

Court records say when Floyd worked at the Department of Public Health and the Department of Human Resources, she stole names and information she gave to an accomplice to file false federal income tax returns.

Floyd is one of eight Alabama women to plead guilty in the past three months to identity theft.
