Wichita Man Gets Three Years in Prison for Identity Thefts
A Wichita man has been sentenced to more than three years in prison for a series of identity thefts that cost victims more than $11,000.
The Wichita Eagle reports that Sedgwick County District Court Judge Bruce Brown ordered Reu Chamberlain to serve 38 months in prison for 10 counts of identity theft, one count of forgery and one count of theft by deception. Chamberlain must also pay restitution.
Court records show Chamberlain pleaded guilty to the charges in April. Prosecutors agreed to drop several other criminal counts against Chamberlain and to not charge him in other cases in exchange for his guilty plea.
The district attorney's office says Chamberlain used personal information to open credit accounts at Wichita businesses between September 2015 and January.
