[ATG] State AG, local prosecutor criminally charge former radio host with ID theft & fraud
Start Date: 4/15/2014 All Day
End Date: 4/15/2014
Entry Description

ANDERSON, Ind. – An Indianapolis woman faces criminal charges for allegedly stealing the identities of four of her family members, according to Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller.

The Indiana Attorney General’s Identity Theft Unit worked with Madison County Prosecutor Rodney Cumming’s office and the Anderson Police Department to file charges recently against Kelli Jack-Kelly who is a former Indianapolis radio host. The fraudulent activity against the victims, all of whom reside in Anderson, first began in 2007.

“Identity theft is far from being a victimless crime. In fact, the financial and emotional toll it takes on victims can be profound and the process of picking up the pieces can take years,” Zoeller said. “Today’s charges are a result of a challenging and long-term investigation by the Anderson Police Department and my office. We will make every effort, along with the Madison County Prosecutor’s Office, so that these victims will receive the justice they deserve.”

Jack-Kelly faces four counts of identity deception and eight counts of fraud – all of which are Class D felonies carrying a penalty range of six months to three years. Charges were filed in the Madison County Circuit Court 5 on April 8 and Jack-Kelly was arrested on Monday with a bond set at $10,000.

Under the authority of Madison County Prosecutor’s Office, which approved the referral of the case, the Indiana Attorney General’s Office is participating in filing the charges and prosecuting the defendant, under a statute designed for such situations.

All defendants charged with criminal offenses are innocent until and unless proven guilty beyond reasonable doubt in a court of law.

Zoeller and Cummings urge victims of identity theft to report any fraudulent activity on their accounts to the local police and attorney general’s office. Please visit www.IndianaConsumer.com/IdTheft to file a complaint or find information on what you can do to protect yourself from identity theft.

Zoeller thanked Deputy Attorneys General Chuck Taylor and Mark Connor for their efforts investigating the case.
