Albany men convicted in federal court

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Dontreal Jenkins and Trevayne Jones were convicted in their federal trial for embezzlement late Friday.

They were convicted on multiple counts, but Jones was found not guilty of county 10 in the indictment.

 An Albany woman, Princess Eatmon, already convicted of embezzling government money, testified Thursday against the men for stealing hundreds of tax refund checks worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Eatmon told the court she stole people's identities to apply for as many as 100 student loans and 40 income tax refunds. Prosecutors showed jurors nearly a dozen forged Social Security Cards and Georgia Driver's Licenses as well as folders containing her records of thefts involving Dontreal Jenkins and Trevayne Jones.

Eatmon was convicted, and is facing 10 years in prison. Eatmon also testified she tried to hire a hit man to kill Jenkins.

Jenkins was represented by Phil Cannon, while Jones was represented by Tom Ledford and John Ledford. Jim Crane was the U.S. Attorney trying the case.

The men were ordered to appear this morning for processing.
