(Portland, OR) -- A Sweet Home man has pleaded guilty to fraudulently getting 600-thousand dollars in COVID-19 pandemic business relief money. Court records show 39-year-old Russell Schort entered the guilty plea last week. Prosecutors say Schort was working with Andrew Lloyd of Lebanon. They allegedly claimed to have a business that did three-million dollars in sales a year and had 56 employees. As part of Schort's plea deal, he'll pay nearly 295-thousand dollars to the federal government. He could face 30 years in prison and a million dollar fine when he's sentenced.
