A New Hampshire mother of two who was recently released from prison is facing another sentence after she was found guilty of two bankruptcy fraud charges by a federal jury, according to published reports.
Ramie Marston was found guilty of filing for bankruptcy without disclosing all the identities she used to rack up the debt, including a former nanny she employed. When she initially filed her petition on March 12, 2009 she only listed her one alias, Robbie Marston, and signed under the penalty of perjury that she had not used another name in the eight years prior to her filing. However, Marston had incurred debt under the names Sarah Calderon, Kristy Kromer, Ramie Brown and her nanny, Susan Blake, after obtaining their credit information.
Marston filed for bankruptcy two days after she was ordered to pay Blake $500 a month until she had reimbursed the more than $61,000 in debt she incurred under Blake's name, reported Seacoast Online. The defendant's sentencing is scheduled for September 19.
Almost 62 percent of individuals charged with bankruptcy fraud in 2010 were sentenced to time in prison, according to the Internal Revenue Service website. Those convicted were incarcerated for an average of 31 months.
