Canton man gets prison time for bank fraud

SIOUX FALLS (AP) -- U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson says a Canton man has been sentenced to prison for bank fraud.

Thirty-eight-year-old Mark Ross was sentenced to 30 months in prison and five years of supervised release. He also was ordered to pay more than $52,000 in restitution. Ross pleaded guilty to the charge in April

Prosecutors say Ross used checks by another person without their consent to open up an account with Home Federal Bank and deposit money. He withdrew funds and passed checks from the same account.
