Vermont man convicted of submitting false invoices

Posted: Updated:

BANGOR, Maine (AP) - A Vermont man accused of submitting false invoices to a Maine town has been convicted of fraud.

Craig Sanborn was convicted of one count of wire fraud Friday in Bangor. He faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. A spokesman for the U.S. attorney's office said Sanborn's sentencing will likely happen in about three months.

Federal prosecutors say Sanborn submitted $300,000 worth of false invoices to Brownville, Maine, officials for materials and services he never purchased in connection to an ammunition plant. The money came from a federal grant.

He also has been convicted of negligent homicide and manslaughter for an explosion at his Colebrook, N.H., gunpowder plant that killed two workers. He was sentenced to 10 to 20 years in prison in that case.
