Man gets prison for oil-spill fraud
Published: May 18,2012
GULFPORT — A 28-year-old Gulfport man has been sentenced to prison for 37 months and ordered to make restitution of $27,000 for fraud involving an oil-spill recovery claim.
Moses W. Keys was sentenced Wednesday.
U.S. District Judge Louis Guirola Jr. also ordered three years of probation.
Keys had received an emergency check for $23,200 on Oct. 13, 2010, for income he claimed he lost from a job with John Miner’s Fresh Seafood in Gulfport.
In November 2010, he gave the Gulf Coast Claims Facility a claim for final payment that showed a one-year loss of more than $78,000 from that job and one with Emeril’s Gulf Coast Fish House in Gulfport.
Keys pleaded guilty in February and had remained free on bond.
