North Texan gets nearly 6 years in disabled veteran scam

🕐 1 min read

SHERMAN, Texas (AP) — A Dallas-area businessman must serve nearly six years in prison for stealing a disabled veteran’s identity and using the information to seek $2.7 million in government contracts.

Sean Page was sentenced by a federal judge in Sherman. Prosecutors on Monday announced the penalty for the 45-year-old Frisco man, who in February was convicted of theft of government property and two counts of aggravated identity theft.

Page was awarded more than a dozen federal contracts by stealing the name and Social Security number of a disabled vet. Investigators say Page used the information to falsely claim his business was eligible for military contracts meant for veteran-owned companies.

Page was paid nearly $1.3 million in government funds as part of the scam.

He was sentenced to 69 months behind bars.
