MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A 27-year-old Isanti man was sentenced to nearly five years in prison in Minneapolis Federal Court on Wednesday in connection with a scheme where he stole people’s IDs and wrote bad checks to get money from banks and retail outlets.
Nathan Allen Miller was sentenced to 57 months in prison on one count of bank fraud. Miller was one of three people in the case indicted on Dec. 7, 2010.
Miller pleaded guilty in the case, and in the plea agreement, he admitted that from November 2006 through February 2009, he conspired with others to commit bank fraud, obtaining money and property.
