Massive ID Theft, Tax Fraud Trial Postponed

Nine people from Alabama and Georgia are accused of stealing IDs from the military hospital at Fort Benning. The patients' identities, as well as those from a state corrections facility, were used to file $20 million in fraudulent tax refunds.

U.S. District Judge Keith Watkins postponed the trial from Nov. 3 to April 13 at the joint request of the prosecution and defense.

"The nine...are accused of using 7,000 stolen IDs to file $20 million in fraudulent tax returns."
