Bank Fraud Suspect Pleads Guilty

There's been another guilty plea in an East Texas bank fraud scheme.

Rodney Purvis pleaded guilty to several counts of bank fraud and forged security. A judge will sentence him after a pre-sentencing investigation.

Purvis is among five people indicted by a federal grand jury for stealing $80,000 from ten area banks by using counterfeit checks.

Three other people charged in the case have also entered guilty pleas. An April 16th trial date is set for a fourth suspect.
