🕐 1 min read

SHERMAN, Texas (AP) — A Minnesota man who authorities say falsely presented himself as a U.S. Navy pilot and defense analyst has been sentenced in Texas to 24 years in prison for stealing from various women he met online.

Forty-seven-year-old Derek Mylan Alldred was sentenced in federal court Wednesday after pleading guilty in December to mail fraud and aggravated identity fraud.

He also was ordered to pay about $255,000 in restitution.

Prosecutors say a Dallas-area woman who was dating Allred, who used the name Richard Tailor, filed a police report after becoming suspicious of him.

Investigators discovered he had charged more than $12,000 to her credit card.

They determined he had victimized at least 25 others in California, Hawaii, Minnesota and Nevada.
