A New Orleans man has been sentenced to more than three years in prison for his role in a scheme to cash stolen checks.

Eddie Matthews III was sentenced to 37 months in prison and ordered to pay more than $25,000 in restitution to banks he defrauded.

Federal prosecutors say Matthews altered stolen checks to increase the amounts and make them payable to others, who posed as home health care providers when they cashed them at banks.
