Former Student Enters Plea for Credit Card Scam
A former Jackson State University student pleaded guilty in connection with a federal credit card scam case.
22-year-old Ashley Dover pleaded not guilty on Tuesday, but changed her plea to guilty during a hearing Thursday in U.S. District Court.
Dover's attorney Kevin Camp says instead of waiting for the case to go to a grand jury, Dover skipped that process and entered a plea to a bill of information.
Dover and three other women were arrested in March. The women were accused of creating fake credit cards with a machine inside Dover's dorm room. Officials say the women used the credit cards to buy more than $25,000 in merchandise.
She will be sentenced in September.
