SKOWHEGAN, Maine (WABI) - A Skowhegan man who pleaded guilty to defrauding a federal COVID-19 relief program was sentenced Wednesday in federal court.

Nathan Reardon, 44, has been sentenced to 20 months in prison and to pay $60,000 in restitution.

Prosecutors say he obtained loan for that much early in the pandemic intended for business and payroll expenses. Reardon used most of the money for personal expenses.

He previously pleaded not guilty.

In July, Reardon pleaded guilty to five counts of bank fraud.
