Chicago men indicted for credit card fraud

Markeith L. Milton, 24, and Dominic L. Hudson, both of Chicago, was indicted for using other people's credit card numbers to obtain property, said U.S. Attorney Carole S. Rendon.

If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the court after reviewing factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation. In all cases the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and, in most cases, it will be less than the maximum.

The investigating agency in this case is the United States Secret Service in Toledo. The case is being handled by Assistant United States Attorney Michael J. Freeman.

An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. Defendants are entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
