PORTLAND, Maine — A Kittery man will spend the next 39 months behind bars after he was sentenced Thursday for violating conditions of release and providing a false document to a federal probation officer, according to the U.S. attorney’s office.
Michael Rock, 54, was sentenced by Judge D. Brock Hornby in U.S. District Court. He pled guilty in May.
In addition to jail time, Rock also earned three years of supervised release once he completes his term.
According to court documents, Rock was on federal supervised release following a conviction for providing false information in a credit application. He had owed over $60,000 in restitution to his victims as a result of those convictions.
Part of Rock’s supervised release required him to truthfully answer all inquiries by his probation officer and provide the officer with financial information that was requested. After the officer suspected the release conditions were violated, Rock was instructed to complete a financial disclosure form.
On the form, Rock failed to disclose a bank account through which he conducted most of his financial activity, and investigation also revealed Rock failed to disclose he was paying rent for a second residence in York, in addition to one in Kittery he had disclosed.
