Robert Thompson, of Zachary, La., was sentenced to 309 years in prison by a U.S. District Court Judge.  Thompson is the leader of a massive identity theft and bribery scheme.  He received the longest sentence of any white collar offender in the history of the Middle District of La.

Thompson was engaged in several conspiracies to get and use the personal and financial information of more than 60 individuals, churches, businesses, and financial institutions.

Among his charges, is the bribery of a corrections officer at Elyan Hunt Correctional Center, where he was serving time, to bring him cell phones.

Ecknozzio Jackson, Charlene Jackson, Sedric Jackson, Dacobia Hamilton, Zelbony Taylor, Murkel Parker, and Barbara Thomas have all pleaded guilty to their involvement in the scheme.

Kelvin Archie, of Texas, has also been charged.  The investigation is still ongoing.
