The wife of former Pacific Grove Police Commander John Nyunt pleaded guilty Tuesday to eight charges, including forgery and identity theft.
Kristin Nyunt was accused of committing massive identity theft -- aided by her husband, who prosecutors said helped her access private records. Her husband also was accused of trying to cover up her crimes by means of threat and fraud.
Kristin Nyunt pleaded guilty in Monterey County Superior Court to two counts of forgery, five counts of identity theft, two counts of computer crimes and one count of first-degree burglary. She's scheduled to be sentenced on Aug. 19 and is likely to be given three years and eight months in state prison, followed by three years and eight months of probation.
Prosecutors said her husband made repeated efforts to cover up his wife's fraud and then later threatened her against reporting her crimes.
