LOCKPORT, N.Y. (WIVB) - A Lockport woman will spend the next year-and-a-half in prison for using 42 fraudulent credit cards.

Culver was convicted along with her three co-conspirators for illegally obtained around $50,000 in cash and merchandise.
The judge also ordered Culver to pay more than $50,000 in restitution.
