North Carolina man gets nearly 6 years for bank fraud
GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina man has been sentenced to nearly six years in prison after he pleaded guilty to bank fraud.
Federal prosecutors said in a news release Wednesday that 33-year-old Kevin Lee Myers Jr. of Kernersville was sentenced in Greensboro to five years and 10 months in prison.
Myers was ordered to pay $150,000 in restitution and must also serve five years of supervised release after the prison sentence.
Myers had pleaded guilty in March.
Prosecutors say Myers falsely told Ally Bank that he was an agent of Myers Enterprises Inc. when he applied for credit to buy a pickup truck for $45,000. He is also pleaded guilty to misrepresenting himself to First National Bank of Omaha by using some else’s personal information to acquire more than $46,000 in services.
