Mother Steals From The IRS

According to Mail Online

A mother of three, who taunted authorities to catch her as she stole about $20 million from the IRS, has been jailed for 21 years.

Rashia Wilson, who pleaded guilty to wire fraud and aggravated identity theft earlier this year, admitted to stealing more than $3 million but the figure is believed to be much higher.

Tampa police were first alerted to the fraud in 2010 when they noticed a drop in drug dealing in the area.

As Wilson, who became known as the ‘First Lady of tax fraud’ was sentenced on Tuesday, she was denied the chance to hug her three children, aged between 2 and 12, good-bye, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

‘She knew what she was doing was wrong. She reveled in the fact that it was wrong,’ U.S. District Judge James. S. Moody Jr. said.

The 27-year-old, who also pleaded guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm, had boasted on Facebook that she was untouchable.

‘I’m Rashia, the queen of IRS tax fraud,’ the post stated. ‘I’m a millionaire for the record, so if U think indicting me will B easy it won’t, I promise you! U need more than black and white to hold me down N that’s to da rat who went N told, as if 1st lady don’t have da TPD under her spell. I run Tampa right now.’

A psychologist brought in to testify for the defense argued the Facebook post was a sign of Wilson’s bi-polar disorder, which made her liable to brag.

When will people learn to not brag about their illegal activities on these social-networking sites. Ignorance stays winning.
