Six of 21 Tyler identity theft suspects appear before judge

Posted: Updated:
SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - Half a dozen East Texans who are accused of taking part in a massive identity theft ring were in court Monday.

Back in May, Tyler Police released the names of 21 suspects they believed had stolen more than $24,000 from 42 unsuspecting victims.

Monday, prosecutors said new discovery, or information regarding the facts of this case, had recently been presented to the defendants' attorneys. Not all of the defendants were in court Monday, but those who were learned that they'd have to come back on November 18th. That's how long the judge is giving those attorneys to look over whatever new information prosecutors handed off.

The defendants in court Monday were Kachada Webb, Lashundra Harris, Britani Anderson, James Miller Jr., Kedarius Oliver and Russell Lowrie.

In total, nearly two dozen defendants are charged with engaging in organized criminal activity.

At least two of the people charged in this case are expected to plea and be sentenced in late October. The rest could learn their fate in November.
