Five years in prison for Florida fraudster

Posted: Updated:

It's five years in prison for a Florida fraudster who cooked up a scheme to steal Vermonters' identities.

Federal prosecutors say Craig Lee Workman, 42, pleaded guilty to stealing more than 120 identities in Vermont and Florida in an effort to file bogus tax returns.

The IRS intercepted the majority of the fake filings, but 23 got through, netting Workman a $179,000 profit.

After his time behind bars, Workman will have to repay the stolen money.
