Yould was the recipient of a new identity under a federal program that helps rape and domestic violence victims hide from their tormentors. But the then 38-year-old used her new identity to defraud lenders out of more than $600,000 in student loan money that she used to play the stock market, buy a condo and launch a start-up business. Yould, born Rachel Hall, claimed that she was sexually abused as a child, raped as a young woman and forced to go into hiding to elude an abusive father who was so relentless that she had to take out a restraining order against him. She used a new social security number given to her through the program to obtained 19 student loans for nearly $680,000 between August 2003 and May 2006, prosecutors said at the trial. She was sentenced to four years and nine months in prison.
