DALLAS (AP) - A North Texas man convicted of passing more than $300,000 in bad checks during a scam with a bank executive has been sentenced to two years in prison.
A federal judge in Dallas on Thursday also ordered 45-year-old Jason Dvorin of Southlake to pay nearly $112,000 in restitution. A jury in February convicted Dvorin of conspiracy to commit bank fraud.
Prosecutors say Dvorin had a deal with 61-year-old Chris Derrington, who was vice president of Pavillion Bank in Richardson, to accept worthless checks. Dvorin then received immediate access to bank funds. The scheme led to nearly 225 fraudulent deposits over five years.
Derrington in 2012 pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit bank fraud. He was sentenced to five years of probation and ordered to pay more than $778,000 in restitution.
