ALBANY, N.Y. - A former Albany Medical Center nurse who pleaded guilty to stealing patient's identities has been sentenced to State Prison.

Suzette Guzman-Moore, 45, was sentenced on Tuesday. Guzman-Moore's attorney asked the judge during the proceeding to consider the woman's assistance with detectives. The attorney also told the judge that the woman's co-defendant, Emmett Woods, had control over Guzman-Moore.

During the sentencing, Guzman-Moore apologized to her victims and the judge. 

Albany County Judge Herrick sentenced Guzman-Moore to four to 12 years in State Prison. Her attorneysays there will be an appeal.

She pleaded guilty earlier this year to multiple felonies. Authorities say she stole personal information from patients and gave it to her boyfriend, 25-year-old Emmett Woods, who then used it to apply for credit cards using the stolen identities.

Woods was sentenced to seven and a half to 15 years in prison on Monday.

Guzman-Moore faces five to 15 years when she's sentenced.
