PITTSBURGH - Two residents of North Versailles, PA, have been indicted by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh on charges of bank and access device fraud, United States Attorney Scott W. Brady announced today.

The two-count Indictment, returned on June 17, and unsealed today, named Matthew Holmes, 27, and Justin Livingston, 27, both of North Versailles, PA, as defendants.

According to the Indictment, from in and around July 2018, and continuing thereafter until in and around September 2018, Holmes and Livingston conspired to commit bank fraud and access device fraud. Additionally, during the same time frame, Holmes and Livingston are alleged to have used and attempted to use credit and debit card numbers belonging to other people and as a result, obtained goods valued at more than $1,000.

The law provides for a maximum total sentence of not more than 10 years in prison, a fine of $250,000 or both. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed would be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

Assistant United States Attorney Jeffrey R. Bengel is prosecuting this case on behalf of the government.

The United States Postal Inspection Service and Department of Homeland Security/Homeland Security Investigations conducted the investigation leading to the Indictment in this case.

An indictment is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
