Seven years after two Pennsylvania credit unions detected suspicious account activity that led federal investigators to uncover a $69 million tax refund scheme, justice finally caught up with one of the leaders of the national fraud ring last week.

U.S. District Judge David S. Cercone in Erie, Pa.  sentenced Doherty Kushimo, 56, of Providence, R.I. to eight years in federal prison on Sept. 18. Earlier this year, he pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud and aggravated identify theft. He was ordered to pay $335,725 in restitution.
