Baker City Man Sentenced To Two Years For COVID-19 Relief Fraud

(Portland, OR) -- A Baker City man has been sentenced to federal prison after pleading guilty to fraudulently getting COVID-19 business relief funds. Court records show 32-year-old Jeremy Clawson got a 145-thousand dollar Economic Injury Disaster Loan using a fake company from San Diego. He started making large cash withdrawals including a 50-thousand dollar cashier's check that he used to buy a 2016 Dodge Challenger. Clawson was sentenced to two years in prison. He's been in jail since August 2020 when he was charged, so the judge reduced the remainder of the sentence to 10 months.
