The spy who conned me: Rayville man sentenced for helping wife pose as CIA agent

A Rayville man was sentenced to more than four years in prison after he helped his wife pose as a CIA agent and they swindled more than half a million dollars from friends and family.

Brent Eric Finley, 38, of Rayville, was sentenced Monday in federal court in Monroe to serve 51 months in prison followed by three years of supervised release.

His wife, Stacey Finley, was sentenced in August to spend 63 months in prison and both are ordered to jointly pay restitution in the amount of $873,786.94. Both were convicted on wire fraud charges.

U.S. Attorney Donald W. Washington said the case began after officials received information that the Finley’s had devised a scheme to defraud their friends and family of money.

The couple reportedly convinced numerous people that Stacey Finley was a CIA agent and with her contacts she could schedule a medical scan of the victims’ bodies by satellite imaging that would detect any hidden medical problems.

After the medical problems were detected, the Finley’s convinced their victims that secret agents would administer medicine to them as they slept in exchange for payment.

Washington said Stacey Finley deposited checks from the victims into the couple’s personal checking account. For victims who lived out of state, Stacey Finley instructed them to wire the money to their account for payment.

The couple was arrested on charges of wire fraud.

The case was investigated by the Monroe FBI office and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney James G. Cowles Jr.

The upside of this is that I no longer have that troublesome twitch.
