A federal judge in Sacramento on Monday sentenced a Sacramento woman to five years in prison for bank fraud and computer fraud.

Sharon D. Richards, 43, pleaded guilty to the crime in October.

Richards used checks and account information from a stolen purse to draw down an account, buy a car and order credit cards.

Richards has an extensive record of fraud, and the most recent crime was "very serious conduct," U.S. District Judge William Shubb said.

The case was investigated by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and Sacramento Police Department.
