Former Kansas soldier gets 2 years prison for identity theft

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A former U.S. Army private who’d been stationed in Kansas has been ordered to spend two years in federal prison after he admitted stealing the identifies of fellow soldiers.

Twenty-four-year-old Todd Newbrough pleaded guilty Tuesday in Topeka, Kansas, to one count of aggravated identity theft. Newbrough also was ordered to pay more than $23,400 in restitution.

Authorities say Newbrough admitted he used his Army position to access personal information about fellow soldiers in his unit at Fort Riley, and then used that information to obtain credit cards and credit lines in the soldiers’ names.
