The male half of the couple labeled the Bonnie and Clyde of identity theft pleaded guilty yesterday to scams worth some $116,000, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Edward Anderton, 25, and his girlfriend, Jocelyn Kirsch, 22, used the money for big purchases and vacations. He faces 5 years in prison.
Anderton, a University of Pennsylvania grad, and Kirsch, a former Drexel University student, were accused of stealing purses, robbing a house, and taking IDs from friends as they assumed 16 identities for their jaunts. Kirsch is set to plead guilty Thursday, an attorney said.
