Wife of former Mariner Carlos Peguero sentenced for fraud involving wife of Felix Hernandez

TACOMA, Wash. - The wife of former Seattle Mariners outfielder Carlos Peguero was sentenced to a year and a day in prison for using bank cards that belonged to pitcher Felix Hernandez's wife for a $191,000 online shopping spree.

Maria Jacqueline Peguero pleaded guilty in February to wire fraud and was sentenced Monday in federal court in Tacoma.

Prosecutors say Sandra Hernandez had asked her for help in making some online purchases after the two women became friends. Peguero then used the information between June and September 2012 for unauthorized purchases at Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom.

The Seattle Times reports (http://is.gd/Jy6X6u ) the charges were questioned when Saks Fifth Avenue asked about the difference between the shipping and billing addresses.

As part of a plea deal, Maria Peguero agreed to pay restitution.
