WICHITA – (December 19, 2018) – A Wichita woman was found guilty of an unlawful act relating to the use of a driver’s license, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said.
Sharon Mingo-Johnson, 72, pleaded no contest today in Sedgwick County District Court to one felony count of an unlawful act relating to the use of a driver’s license. The case stemmed from an investigation by the Office of Special Investigations of the Kansas Department of Revenue, which revealed that Mingo-Johnson used documents in the name of her deceased sister to obtain a driver’s license because hers had been previously suspended.
This is the fifth conviction resulting from a new agreement announced in March between the attorney general’s office and the Department of Revenue. Under the agreement, the attorney general’s office, in cooperation with local prosecutors, assumed responsibility for the prosecution of cases of tax fraud and related crimes investigated by the Department of Revenue in efforts to strengthen the state’s enforcement efforts for these types of crimes.
Judge Deborah Hernandez-Mitchell took the plea. Sentencing has been set for January 30 at 9 a.m.
The case is being prosecuted by Assistant Attorney General Jon Noble of Schmidt’s office.
