VENTURA, California – District Attorney Erik Nasarenko announced today that Jennifer Leeane Camara (DOB 07/26/74), of Pomona, has been sentenced to serve three years in jail for her role in stealing the identity of a Moorpark woman.
In March 2018, Camara and three codefendants stole the personal identity information of a Moorpark victim and used it to obtain a $265,000 bail bond. The bail bond was used to post the bail for codefendant Paul Buck, who was being held on domestic violence charges in Los Angeles County. The scheme was discovered when the victim was notified by Power Bail Bonds that she would be responsible for paying $265,000 if Buck failed to appear in court. After Camara was charged, she failed to appear in Ventura County Superior Court on numerous occasions. In April 2020, Camara pled guilty to felony identity theft and failure to appear in court.
On July 2, 2019, Paul Buck was sentenced to eight months in state prison for his role in the conspiracy. The other two codefendants died during the pendency of this case.
This matter was investigated by the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office and prosecuted by the District Attorney’s Office Fraud and Technology Crimes Unit.
