BALTIMORE (AP) — A Delaware man has been sentenced in Maryland to nearly four years in prison for his role in a plot to defraud a beauty product manufacturer out of more than $2 million.
U.S. District Judge James Bredar on Friday ordered 51-year-old Thi Van Ho, of Bear, Delaware, to pay over $2.4 million in restitution and sentenced him to three years of supervised release after his 46-month prison term.
Ho pleaded guilty in November to charges of conspiracy and interstate transportation of stolen property.
Federal prosecutors say Ho and four others participated in a scheme to submit fraudulent invoices in the names of shell companies for services and products that weren’t provided to the defrauded company.
