Gypsy Willis, 34, was sentenced Tuesday to 36 months of probation for identity fraud and two counts of giving false and inconsistent statements, all second-degree felonies, and filing a wrongful lien, a third-degree felony.
Willis pleaded guilty to the charges in March as part of a plea bargain with prosecutors.
