Couple Admits to Stealing $1.2 Million from Amazon

EPA

A Muncie couple have formally admitted to stealing more than $1.2 million in merchandise from online retail giant Amazon, The Star Press reports.

Erin Joseph Finan, 38, and Leah Jeanette Finan, 37, in recent weeks pleaded guilty to mail fraud and money laundering in U.S. District Court in Indianapolis.

Judge Tanya Walton Pratt set sentencing hearings for Nov. 9.

Both charges carry maximum 20-year prison terms and $500,000 fines.

Under the terms of a plea agreement, the couple will be ordered to pay Amazon $1,218,504 in restitution.

The plea deal also calls for the Finans to waive their right to appeal if sentenced to less than seven years and three months in prison.

In May, U.S. Attorney Josh Minkler said the Finans purchased hundreds of electronics items from Amazon under “hundreds of false online identities.”
