LA PINE, OR -- A La Pine man was sentenced this week, to two years in federal prison for money laundering. According to federal prosecutors, 44-year-old Erik Johnson defrauded 91 eBay customers during a three-week scheme in 2011. 

 

Johnson admitted to receiving more than $180,000 in payments for high-end digital cameras, while only shipping about $5,200 in product to customers. eBay refunded nearly $104,000 to customers who didn't get their camera. 
 
Johnson won’t report to prison until September 2018, to allow him to complete his studies at a community college. He was also ordered to pay restitution to eBay and perform 150 hours of community service.
