ME: Man Sentenced to 5 Years in Prison for Fraud and Identity Theft
As a follow-up to a story reported back in July, 2009, a person who pleaded guilty to one count of bank fraud and two counts of aggravated identity theft was sentenced to 60 months in prison.
The docket for the case also noted that the sentence included 5 years supervised release on Count 3 and 1 year supervised release on Counts 4 and 5 to be served concurrently; $300 special assessment and $93,000.00 restitution. Counts 1 and 2 were dismissed upon motion of the Government.
Update of June 28, 2021. The convicted person’s name and links to any coverage that included his name have been removed from this site. After serving his sentence, he was deported from this country. Because his crime and sentence ruined his chances of becoming a doctor, he took another path and obtained two degrees. DataBreaches.net confirmed that he obtained those degrees and legitimate employment. He has asked to have his name removed so that his past doesn’t continue to wreck his chances for the future.
It’s been 12 years, and so — despite a somewhat loony attempt in 2015 to get me to remove the reporting by threatening me with a lawsuit and then having someone claim to be with the Supreme Court representing him — this site has agreed to update the posts to remove his name. I have kept the files, though, and should there be any recidivism, the entire history will be reported. Hopefully, that won’t be needed.
