BOISE, Idaho (AP) — An Idaho inmate has been ordered to serve 33 months in prison and repay more than $59,000 collected by purporting to be a claimant in class-action lawsuits and bankruptcy settlements across the country.

U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmill also ordered three years of supervised release for 53-yearold Mark Anthony Brown, now serving time in the state prison in Orofino on grand theft and burglary.

Brown pleaded guilty in August to two counts of mail fraud. Prosecutors say between 2007 and 2013 he took part in a scheme to fraudulently collect money by getting involved in at least 22 class action and bankruptcy cases. Prosecutors say Brown submitted claim forms to those overseeing case settlements and received part of the proceeds, which were then deposited into his prison account.
