A fired Miami-Dade County public schools cafeteria worker was sentenced to almost seven years in prison Wednesday for stealing hundreds of students' personal information from a computer network to commit income-tax fraud.

Pamela Rhim-Grant, 40, of Miami, a former food services manager at Horace Mann Middle School, pleaded guilty in April to stealing about 400 student identities from Coral Reef, Palmetto, Killian and several other Miami-Dade high schools. She used them to file more than 200 fraudulent tax returns.

Rhim-Grant admitted she sold the students’ names, dates of birth and Social Security numbers at $10 each to Eugene Moss and Nydia Nelson, both of Miami.

Moss, 33, who pleaded guilty, was sentenced to nearly six years in prison Wednesday. Nelson, 30, who also pleaded guilty, will be sentenced later this month.
