PHOENIX (AP) - A woman accused of identity theft and extortion in Phoenix has been sentenced to three years' probation and six months of deferred jail time.

Maricopa County prosecutors say 24-year-old Charline Hurtado entered into a plea agreement Tuesday.

Hurtado and another woman were arrested in the case last month.

Phoenix police say a 35-year-old woman had personal items stolen out of her car May 10.

The stolen items included her purse which contained numerous items of identification, credit cards, banking information, passports and other documents.

The victim told police that she began to see unauthorized use on her bank account and her family received death threats if she didn't pay $10,000 to the two suspects.

Police say they were able to identify Hurtado by telephone records for the alleged extortion calls.
