Oregon mom and daughter guilty in Coke scam
Police arrested 55-year-old Carrie Jones and her 31-year-old daughter Sarah Jones in 2011, after corporate investigators tracked an unusually high number of winnings to a computer IP address in Albany.
Prosecutor Coleen Cerda said the odds were against the city of Albany -- let alone one family -- getting so many prizes. Contest rules also specified that a person could win only twice and a household only five times during the four-month promotion.
The Albany Democrat-Herald reported that Sarah Jones pleaded guilty to computer crime and identity theft. Carrie Jones pleaded guilty to computer crime.
