Maria Jacqueline Peguero, the wife of Seattle Mariners outfielder Carlos Peguero, was once caught up in a web of federal charges related to unauthorized debit card purchases. Sandra Hernandez was the alleged victim of this financial scam.

Between June 26, 2012, and October 9, 2012, Peguero allegedly executed a string of illegal transactions that resulted in an astounding $180,000 in purchases from Saks Fifth Avenue.

It was alleged that Peguero had spent a lot of time at Sandra Hernandez's house, taking advantage of the victim's imperfect English to access her credit cards.

When investigators linked the purchases to an email address connected to Peguero's Twitter account, the items were found as a result of a search warrant.

A long list of transactions—more than 60 in total—depicted a spree of purchases ranging from small sums to startling sums exceeding $11,000. The U.S. Secret Service officially charged Maria Peguero with three counts of wire fraud, using the force of federal law to overturn her earlier plea of not guilty.

Peguero changed her plea to guilty and was sentenced in Tacoma federal court.
