Gloucester District Court: Man ordered to pay $13K over credit theft

Judge Mary McCabe sentenced a 44-year-old Beverly man to pay $13,845 in restitution after he pleaded guilty to larceny charges and handed the man a suspended one-year jail sentence.

David J. Curran faced the charges after having used a credit account belonging to his former employer, Mattherson Gas Company, to purchase items at the Gloucester and Essex Building Center stores. According to reports, Curran spent about $13,845 on the company’s credit account between February and November 2012.

McCabe ordered Curran to pay a $90 assessment fee in addition to the restitution and placed him on probation until October 2014.

If Curran breaks the law during his probation or disobeys the terms of the probation, he could face one year in Middleton Jail. The charges Curran pleaded guilty to and was found guilty on include larceny over $250 by false pretense and in one single scheme, document forgery and identity fraud.

Judge Richard A. Mori found Wesley R. Fornero responsible on a charge of owning an unregistered vehicle, but dismissed a charge of owning an uninsured vehicle against 31-year-old Fornero of Addison Street.
