Sentence in Nigerian Scam

A judge in Billings, Montana is giving a deaf woman just a single day behind bars and three years supervised release for her part in a scheme involving fake money orders from Wal-Mart, American Express checks and a man from Nigeria. Robin Champion could have gotten as much as a 18 months in prison. She pled guilty to to one count of mail fraud and eight other counts were dismissed. Since the indictment, Champion changed her name to Robin Bolton.
