A Riverside County woman who used state Employment Development Department debit cards stolen from the mail to withdraw funds from bank cash machines faces sentencing Monday.

Michalea Barksdale, also known as Miichii Bee, 34, of Corona, pleaded guilty in March to one count of bank fraud and one count of possession of 15 or more unauthorized access devices, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

She has agreed to forfeit her ill-gotten gains from the scheme, including 103 EDD debit cards, 78 Economic Impact Payments cards and four iPhones. Barksdale faces up to 40 years in federal prison at her sentencing hearing in Los Angeles federal court.

Barksdale worked the scheme with an ex-U.S. Postal Service mail carrier from South Los Angeles who admitted to stealing debit cards from the mail while on duty and giving them to her co-defendant in exchange for cash and gifts.
