CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - An Elkins man faces up to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to wire fraud.
 
U.S. Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld II says 33-year-old Richard Maurice Haddix fraudulently obtained more than $102,000 while working as a broker for a transportation management firm. Haddix created 230 fictitious cash advances which caused the money to be deposited into his personal bank account.
 
Under a plea agreement, Haddix will pay $102,260 in restitution to the victims. He also faces a $250,000 fine.
 
Haddix pleaded guilty earlier this month in U.S. District Court in Clarksburg.
