Federal prosecutors for Iowa say 39-year-old Nadine Robinson, of Atlanta, was sentenced Monday to 10 years in prison for conspiracy to commit money laundering.
Prosecutors say Robinson was the owner of a check cashing business in Georgia that she used to launder hundreds of money orders bought with stolen tax refunds. Prosecutors say in all, Robinson passed more than $5 million in fraudulently-obtained funds through the account during March and April of 2015.
Robinson also was ordered to forfeit a house she bought in Atlanta with the stolen money.
