A woman who worked with her cousin to steal the identities of 13 unsuspecting Library of Congress employees was sentenced Monday to two and a half years in prison.

Labiska Gibbs admitted that in spring 2008 she asked her second cousin William Sinclair Jr., who worked in the library's human resource department, to get her the names, birth dates and Social Security numbers of library workers from the payroll database.

Gibbs opened several credit accounts in the names of those workers and spent nearly $40,000. Prosecutors said she often bought gift cards that she would sell at a discount.
