BATON ROUGE - The Justice Department says Beau Michael Guidry of Baton Rouge has been sentenced in connection with an odometer tampering scheme that defrauded victims in and around Louisiana.

U.S. District Judge James J. Brady sentenced Guidry Thursday to 20 months in prison and one year of supervised release during which he cannot be involved in the sale of motor vehicles. In addition, the court ordered Guidry to pay over $72,000 in restitution to his victims.

Prosecutors say Guidry purchased high-mileage motor vehicles on eBay and wholesale automobile auctions in Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas. They say the vehicles' odometers were then rolled back as much as 147,000 miles and resold at Guidry's used vehicle company in Denham Springs or through eBay to unsuspecting purchasers.
