ANCHORAGE- A 43-year-old Anchorage man has been ordered to pay more than $142,000 restitution and will serve 54 months in a federal prison after being convicted of identity fraud charges.


Michael Duane Rogers was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Anchorage for uttering and possessing counterfeited securities, unlawful production of false identification documents, unlawful possession of five or more false identification documents, illegal transactions with an access device, possession of stolen mail and being a felon in possession of a weapon.


The U.S. attorney's office says in a release that from 2007 to 2009, Rogers produced counterfeit checks and false IDs, and used them at businesses. Authorities say there were 188 victims.

The punishment didnt fit the crime. He should have been sentenced 1yr per victim. I was a victim 3yrs ago, and it took 8 months to get my life back on track. Mark, I heard of idRadar. Lifelock was ok until I read they were fined for false claims. These days you need insurance for everything. What will thieves think up next?

With everything going on these days, you just cant trust anyone. I use to ignore those identity theft protection commercials. Now, I've actually signed up for idRadar. Sad, but that's the way the world is today. They should make identity theft a mandatory 20yr sentence.
