BANGOR, Maine (AP) -- A Vermont man convicted of wire fraud for submitting false invoices to a Maine town will be sentenced this summer.

Sixty-four-year-old Craig Sanborn, formerly of Maidstone, Vt., was convicted last month in Bangor and faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. U.S. Attorney Gail Malone said Monday that Sanborn's sentencing will take place in late July or early August.

Federal prosecutors say Sanborn submitted $300,000 worth of false invoices to Brownville, Maine, for materials and services he never purchased.

He was also convicted in October of two counts of negligent homicide and manslaughter in connection with an explosion at a Colebrook, N.H., gun powder plant that killed 49-year-old Jesse Kennett and 56-year-old Donald Kendall.
