United States of America v. Gregory Bethea

Western District of Wisconsin Federal Courthouse - Madison, Wisconsin

Case Number: 3:17-cr-00008-jdp

Judge: Jame D. Peterson

Court: United States District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin (Dane County)

Plaintiff's Attorney: Julie Pfluger

Description: Madison, WI - Milwaukee Man Sentenced to 21 Months for Credit Card Fraud

Gregory Bethea, 50, Milwaukee, pleaded guilty and was sentenced by U.S. District Judge James D. Peterson to 21 months in federal prison for credit card fraud. Bethea was also ordered to pay $62,888.48 in restitution to Discover Financial Services.

In April 2014, law enforcement was contacted by a Samís Club and Walmart fraud investigator, who requested assistance with an ongoing credit card fraud investigation. Review of surveillance camera footage from Walmart and Samís Club stores helped law enforcement identify Bethea as the person using fraudulently obtained credit cards to purchase merchandise at retailers throughout Wisconsin and Michigan. Bethea purchased various items with the fraudulent credit cards, including food items, iPads, video gaming systems, clothing, computers, and electronics.

The charge against Bethea was the result of an investigation conducted by the U.S. Secret Service.

Outcome: Defendant was sentenced to 21 months in federal prison for credit card fraud. Bethea was also ordered to pay $62,888.48 in restitution.
