OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A man who was arrested in eastern Oklahoma last year has been sentenced in Arkansas to seven years in prison after living with a stolen identity for nearly 30 years.
The Oklahoman reports Allen Frank Martin was sentenced last week for aggravated identity theft and theft of government funds after pleading guilty. He’s also ordered to pay nearly $277,800 in restitution to the Social Security Administration after his release for fraudulently accepting disability payments since 2003.
Records show the 57-year-old lived as John David Bailey in California, Arkansas, Montana and Oklahoma.
Martin assumed the identity in 1990 after jumping parole in Arkansas.
