NATCHEZ, Miss. —  

A Nov. 19 sentencing date has been set for a woman convicted of using someone else's identity to open a credit account.

Angela Presley was convicted by a federal jury on three counts of fraud in August in U.S. District Court in Natchez.

Prosecutors say the crimes date back to 2007. Court records say Presley told investigators she "engaged in the conduct" for which she was charged to help the alleged victim cover up an affair.

Prosecutors said that wasn't true.
