A Big Lake man will spend the next seven years in prison for his role in a fraud scheme against a local energy company.

55-year-old Carlos Bueno, was convicted back in December for using his company, Muy Bueno Backhoe, to charge Endeavor Energy for tasks he never performed.

Bueno's company did dirt work for Endeavor back in 2008 and issued phone invoices with overcharges.

He took more than $1 million from the company and he'll have to pay that back.

He'll be on three years probation after being released.
