UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) — A Maryland man has been sentenced to six years in prison as part of an identity theft-scam involving 50 victims.

The Washington Post reports that 45-year-old Lawrence I. Green of Brentwood and others from the Maryland and the District of Columbia have pleaded guilty to stealing information to access bank accounts and obtain credit in 2008 and 2009.

Green was sentenced Thursday. He was also ordered to pay about $38,260 in restitution.

The Maryland U.S. Attorney’s Office says two other defendants from Maryland, Ibraheem Majekodunmi and Keith Parker, used fake state identification cards to get mail from victims after having their mail put on hold.

Prosecutors say Kim Henson of Washington stole checks from mailboxes in Prince George’s County. Green and others then withdrew cash from the victims’ accounts.
