A Pittsburgh federal judge on Thursday sentenced a Georgia man to one year and one day in prison for recruiting local homeless people to cash forged business checks at area banks.

Travis Davis, 25, of Atlanta pleaded guilty in June to the check forging conspiracy that included three other men from Atlanta who have also pled guilty. Two are awaiting sentencing and one was sentenced to nine months in prison and three years of probation.

U.S. District Judge Joy Flowers Conti also sentenced Davis to two years of probation and made him and the other three defendants jointly liable for paying $99,473.36 in restitution to PNC Bank, Niagara Bank, Citizens Bank, First Commonwealth Bank and Dollar Bank.
