A Hill District man will spend three years in prison for conspiring with others to file false federal income tax returns, a federal judge ruled Thursday.

Frank Smith, 70, pleaded guilty in October to participating in the ring. Using stolen identities, including those of Georgia state inmates, people in Atlanta and Pittsburgh filed returns seeking tax refunds.

U.S. District Judge Nora Barry Fischer also sentenced Smith to three years of probation and ordered him to pay $24,706 in restitution to the Internal Revenue Service.
