MIDLAND - A Midland man convicted of bank fraud, money laundering, and identity theft has been sentenced to more than 11 years in prison.

39-year-old Carlos Machuca was sentenced on Tuesday.

In addition to his prison term, he'll have to pay more than $600,000 back to his victims.

Machuca was working at a Hobbs dealership when he and a co-worker began bilking customers out of extra money.

A Midland Jury convicted him back in June.

His co-conspirator, Miriam Moreno, is currently serving a 21-month sentence in federal prison.
