Hospital Worker Gets Jail Time for I.D. Theft

A former Dothan hospital employee has been sentenced to two years in prison for stealing patients' identities to file fraudulent tax returns. Kamarian Millender of Headland received the sentence Friday in Montgomery. He pleaded guilty in July to one count of aggravated identity theft. Court records show Millender worked as a lab technician at Flowers Hospital in Dothan and stole patient records containing personal identifying information. Then he used the information to file fraudulent tax returns and obtain refunds from the Internal Revenue Service. Prosecutors said 73 people were victimized, and the fraudulent returns sought more than $536,000. The IRS stopped most of the returns, but nearly $19,000 in refunds was issued. Millender was ordered to pay back that amount.
