Man convicted of identity theft, fake organizations for veterans

Austin Baird reports:

For the better part of three years, Alan Michael Bartlett of Owosso, Mich., was the leader of U.S. Disabled Veterans, LLC and U.S. Handicapped-Disadvantaged Services, LLC.

The organizations sound noble enough, but a jury on Monday found the 46-year-old guilty of using the businesses as a front to defraud dozens of people in a scheme that did nothing more than pay for Bartlett’s student loans and credit card, and gave him cash to expand his stock market portfolio.

Bartlett was convicted of 27 counts of fraud, five counts of making false statements to the U.S. Postal Service, and five counts of aggravated identity theft.
