Identity theives sentenced to 14,15 years

A Sunnyvale man was sentenced today to 14 years in prison for identity theft as part of a more than $1 million real estate scam. John Shaw, 47, faced up to 27 years after being convicted last year on 14 felony counts, including forgery, grand theft, identify theft, recording false documents, and conspiracy.

A licensed real estate agent, Shaw assumed the identities of at least five people, mostly his clients, and purchased real estate in their names. He then sold the property to other names he assumed, pocketing the profits.

Another identity thief who stole 16-thousand dollars from his victims, was sentenced Wednesday in Honolulu Circuit Court to 15 years in prison. The 28-year-old Saatkamp was also ordered to pay restitution to his victims – eight individuals and three financial institutions.
