Mitchell man pleads guilty to identity theft

A Mitchell man pleaded guilty Tuesday to two counts of identity theft.

Cale Bender, 27, faces a maximum of two years in prison and a $4,000 fine on each count as a result of the guilty plea. In exchange, prosecutors agreed to dismiss additional charges.

Bender admitted to taking a check card without permission and using it to make multiple purchases at businesses in Mitchell.

He is scheduled to be sentenced in December.
