Marine gets five years in prison for stealing identities

HONOLULU (KHNL) - In a Honolulu court room Friday, Circuit Judge Randall Lee sentenced Kaneohe Marine Cpl. Daniel Alfieri, to five years in prison. The 28-year-old pleaded no contest. Along with is sentence he will also have to pay over $800 in restitution.

After serving two tours in Iraq, Alfieri was arrested by Honolulu Police in November of 2007 on charges of identity theft.

Prosecuters say Affieri used the personal identification of five deployed Marines to apply for credit cards, which he then used at various stores.

The convicted Marine blamed his illegal actions on post-traumatic stress and bipolar disorder.
