PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A woman involved in a tax scheme in which she and three others filed false income tax returns to rack up more than $1 million in fraudulent funds has been sentenced to more than three years in prison.

The Oregonian reports (https://bit.ly/1UUWGoC ) that Tataneisha White was sentenced in federal court in Portland on Tuesday and ordered to pay nearly $627,000 in restitution to the IRS. She had pleaded guilty to several charges, including conspiracy to file false claims and theft of government funds.

White admitted to working with her accomplices to file nearly 230 false income tax returns and claim more than $1 million in the scheme.

White’s attorney had argued for a shorter sentence of two years, saying his client needs to get treatment for a pill addiction.
