A 37-year-old Omaha man has been sentenced to federal prison for wire fraud and a weapons violation.
Federal prosecutors said Monday that Joshua Roth was given a year and a day in prison. He must serve five years of supervised release after he leaves custody and must pay restitution of more than $21,300.
Prosecutors say Roth came into possession of a bank account number, user name and password of a First National Bank customer. Prosecutors say he used that information to open a PayPal account and transfer money to it from the bank account. Then, prosecutors say, he used the PayPal account to buy items and have them shipped to his house.
