UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) -- A former District of Columbia police officer has been sentenced to 18 months in prison for stealing her brother's identity and using it on loan applications.

Jamell Stallings was sentenced Monday in Prince George's County after being convicted of counterfeiting, identity fraud and theft.

Prosecutors say Stallings took out a $5,000 loan using her brother's name and social security number. They say he also used his name on a $13,000 automobile loan.

Stallings must also complete 500 hours of community service, seek treatment for a gambling addiction and serve five years of supervised probation.
