HAGERSTOWN -- A Hagerstown man was sentenced Thursday by three judges in Washington County Circuit Court to three years and one day in prison for his role in a credit card theft scheme and two instances of probation violations.
Michael Shawn Clark, 44, of 141 King St., pleaded guilty before Circuit Judge Daniel P. Dwyer to a misdemeanor charge of theft scheme less than $500. In exchange for the plea, charges of use or disclosure of credit card numbers and fraud by personal identification information theft were dismissed.
Dwyer sentenced Clark to one year and one day in prison.
Circuit Judge W. Kennedy Boone III then sentenced Clark to a concurrent sentence of one year in prison for violating probation on a 2008 conviction for altering a drug or alcohol test.
Circuit Judge John H. McDowell then sentenced Clark to two years in prison for violating probation on a 1997 armed robbery conviction. McDowell's sentence was made consecutive to the one year and one day sentence imposed by Dwyer.
