SD man accused of creating false checks gets 10 years

BELLE FOURCHE (AP) — A South Dakota man at the center of an identity theft case has been ordered to spend 10 years in prison.

Authorities accuse 43-year-old Gregory Harrison of creating false checks, stealing people's identities and using the payroll accounts of businesses in the Rapid City area for his own benefit.

Attorney General Marty Jackley says Harrison was sentenced Wednesday on charges of aggravated grand theft and forgery.

The Belle Fourche man has also been ordered to pay more than $13,000 in restitution.

Harrison's attorney could not immediately be reached to comment on the case.
