Gloria Donoghue pleaded guilty in April and was ordered to pay restitution of $320,621 to the Internal Revenue Service. As part of her plea agreement, she also forfeited more than $579,378.

The DOJ did not immediately release any more information about the case, but records show a Gloria Donoghue, 68, who used to live in Roosevelt and now lives in Washington, D.C. Attempts to reach her were not successful.
