SANTA ROSA, Calif. (AP) — A Contra Costa County woman will be serving time behind bars after being sentenced for identity theft and other charges.

Sonoma County prosecutors say Denise Hankins was sentenced to ten years in prison on Wednesday after being convicted of 20 counts of identity theft and related charges.

District Attorney Jill Ravitch says the 42-year-old Hankins will serve her time in county jail because of prison realignment. Hankins will also be under mandatory supervision for five years once she's released.

Authorities say Hankins, who is from Oakley, bilked more than 60 individuals, business and banks by using stolen IDs to set up phony checking accounts. Losses were estimated at less than $100,000.

The Santa Rosa Press Democrat reports that police found stolen and forged documents in a briefcase when Hankins was arrested at a hotel in September.

Investigators uncovered more forged documents when they searched her home.
