AUGUSTA, Ga. -- U.S. Attorney's officials say an eastern Georgia man accused of bank fraud, wire fraud and identity theft has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.

Officials said Tuesday that 44-year-old Bryant Webb, of Augusta, worked at a funeral home and was accused of defrauding his employer and the families of deceased people out of more than $215,000 in insurance policy proceeds.

Authorities say Webb later began working at a nursing home in Augusta and stole about $33,000 from disabled residents.

A judge has delayed ordering Webb to pay restitution for 90 days to allow any other potential victims to come forward.

Webb is ordered to serve five years of supervised release after his prison sentence and is not eligible for parole.
