One of three people charged with draining the bank account of an Illinois soldier serving in Iraq has been sentenced to four years in prison.

Timothy Sims, 36, pleaded guilty Tuesday in Will County Circuit Court to stealing personal financial information from U.S. Army Spc. Neil Lattz of Braidwood...

Lattz is assigned to the 4th Infantry Division, 300th Quartermaster Brigade based in Peru in central Illinois.

The defendants are accused of using the soldier's personal information to pay for three cellular phone contracts and buy insurance policies that would allow them to buy automobiles, officials said.
