BANGOR — The Bangor woman convicted of stealing the identity of a rear admiral in the U.S. Coast Guard was sentenced Thursday in U.S. District Court to three years and four months in federal prison.

Mary L. Landry, 43, has maintained her innocence. Her Bangor attorney, Jon Haddow, said after the sentencing that he would appeal the conviction and sentence to the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston.

U.S. District Judge John Woodcock also sentenced Landry to three years of supervised release and ordered her to pay a $3,600 fine. He also ordered Landry to pay restitution of more than $5,000 to a credit card company.

Landry was convicted by a jury in January of using the name and Social Security number of Rear Admiral Mary E. Landry of Washington, D.C., to obtain credit cards.

The judge ordered the defendant, who had been free on $5,000 bail, to begin serving her sentence immediately.
