A man will spend four years in jail for his involvement in a scheme to defraud five or more people in Kodiak.

Logan Mosquito, 22, was sentenced to seven years in jail with three years suspended for pleading guilty to one count of attempting to defraud five or more victims, a class B felony.

Mosquito faced four additional counts of second-degree theft and three counts of issuing a bad check, but those charges were dismissed in a plea deal.

Mosquito was also ordered to pay restitution and will be on probation for three years once he is released from jail.

According to court documents, Mosquito’s scheme to defraud the people occurred between Jan. 29, 2012 and April 20, 2012.

Mosquito was accused of writing three bad checks totaling more than $1,800 in March 2012. He allegedly issued a $663.56 check to Petro Marine Services on March 1, 2012, a $709 to Dr. John Shank of Eyecare Excellence on March 6, 2012 and a $518.06 check to Cost Savers on March 10, 2012. Those three Class C felony charges were dismissed along with the theft charge in the plea deal.

In a separate case, Mosquito was sentenced to a year in jail for a felony burglary charge that occurred in Nome in 2010. In August 2011, he was granted a suspended sentence that placed him on probation for two years. Mosquito violated his probation, so he was sentenced for the crime in conjunction with the 2012 Kodiak case.

Mosquito pleaded guilty to the second-degree burglary charge in December, and charges of third-degree criminal mischief and giving alcohol to a minor were dropped in the plea deal. He received credit for time already served.

Mosquito also now faces a misdemeanor fourth-degree assault charge for allegedly recklessly injuring a person in Anchorage. His arraignment for that charge is scheduled for March 20 in the U.S. District Court of Alaska.
