CLEVELAND - A Cuyahoga County judge convicted a husband and wife of hundreds of felonies in an odometer fraud case.
Michael Mankins , 38, was convicted of 98 charges of theft, forgery, and tampering with an odometer, among other crimes. His wife, Kimberly Mankins, 41, was convicted of 108 forgery and theft charges.
The couple were ordered to pay $58,574 in restitution.
According to investigators, the Mankins were involved in a scheme to roll back vehicle odometers to mislead customers about the mileage on the cars they purchased.
The BMV and Ohio State Highway Patrol investigated the case for more than a year. A grand jury indicted the couple and two others, Samuel Mankins and John Childrey, in May on counts involving charges against multiple people.
Michael and Kimberly Mankins will be sentenced on Nov. 29 at 11 a.m.
