Forty-six-year-old Gordon Caldwell of Madison pleaded guilty in March in East St. Louis to felony counts of conspiracy, wire fraud and aggravated identity theft. A judge also ordered Coldwell to pay roughly $88,000 in restitution.

Caldwell also admitted that at least twice he used fraudulently obtained vehicle titles to take out car loans.
