PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A former college student convicted of stealing the identities of neighbors and friends has returned to federal custody in Philadelphia to face a probation violation charge that could send her back to prison.
The Philadelphia Inquirer (http://bit.ly/1jseW0t) said a magistrate ordered Monday that 28-year-old Jocelyn Kirsch remain jailed until a federal court decides whether a recent shoplifting conviction violates the terms of her post-sentence court supervision.
A hearing is set for April 29.
Kirsch was sentenced to one year in jail after being convicted in January of two felony burglary counts in California.
That conviction comes six years after Kirsch, then a Drexel University student, was sentenced to five years in federal prison for a $100,000 identity theft spree with then-boyfriend and University of Pennsylvania graduate Edward Anderton.
