    BURLINGTON ó The Vermont office of the United States attorney says a 42-year-old Florida man has pleaded guilty to fraud conspiracy.

    Prosecutors say Craig Lee Workman entered the plea Thursday in U.S. District Court in Burlington.

    Prosecutors say Workman used identification information belonging to others to file false income tax returns under their names, claiming tax refunds.

    Officials say he filed about 125 false claims and received 25 refunds, fraudulently receiving about $180,000.

    Prosecutors say that in April 2011 Workman and his spouse visited five tax preparation offices in Vermont and New Hampshire. In each they sought assistance filing tax returns for others, whom they described as incarcerated family members.

    Workman faces up to 10 years in prison.

    Workmanís attorney declined to comment Friday.
