BANGOR (AP) — A Vermont man convicted of wire fraud for submitting false invoices to a Maine town may receive a sentencing date soon.

Craig Sanborn, of Maidstone, Vermont, was scheduled in U.S. District Court in Bangor on Monday. A judge convicted Sanborn in May; he faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. His case was scheduled for a pre-sentencing conference. Prosecutors say a sentencing date could be set.

Prosecutors say Sanborn submitted $300,000 worth of false invoices to Brownville, Maine for materials and services never bought.

He was also convicted last year of two counts of negligent homicide and manslaughter in connection with a fatal explosion at a Colebrook, New Hampshire, gunpowder plant.
