ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Federal prosecutors say a 37-year-old citizen of Guyana has admitted to being part of a counterfeit credit card operation that netted hundreds of thousands of dollars in gift cards bought at stores in New Hampshire and four other northeastern states.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says Monday that Georgette Jackman pleaded guilty last Friday in federal court in Albany to charges that include conspiracy to commit access device fraud, aggravated identity theft and trafficking in counterfeit access devices.

Prosecutors say Jackman and two men traveled to 47 Price Chopper supermarkets and other stores in New York, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire and Connecticut between February 2012 and January 2013 and used hundreds of counterfeit credit cards to purchase $435,000 worth of gift cards.

Jackman faces up to 17 years in prison when she sentenced Feb. 18. She also faces deportation after completing her sentence.
