NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - A former Eastern Shore tax franchise store owner will spend two years in prison for aggravated identity theft.

U.S. Attorney Dana J. Boente says 41-year-old Sherry R. Kelley of Exmore used about 20 clients’ identity information to obtain 30 lines of credit from H&R; Block Bank. She made thousands of dollars’ worth of purchases and ATM cash withdrawals from the accounts, and later repaid the money.

Kelley formerly owned and operated four H&R; Block stores in Belle Haven, Onley, Melfa and Cheriton.

She pleaded guilty last September and was sentenced Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Norfolk.
