WI Man Facing Prison for Pandemic Scam

A Madison man could spend the next 20 years behind bars after being found guilty of stealing almost a half-million-dollars from the government during the coronavirus outbreak. 

The Department of Justice announced that a jury in federal court convicted 36-year-old Eric Upchurch on multiple charges related to making false statements on more than a dozen P-P-P loan applications.  Prosecutors argued that Upchurch deposited 400-thousand-dollars in loans straight into his bank account, and then laundered the money through crypto currency.  A sentencing date is scheduled for August 30th.
