ATLANTA (AP) - An Atlanta-area man will be serving about one year in prison for impersonating a United States Marshal.

U.S. Attorney John Horn said in a news release that 56-year-old John L. Edens of Sandy Springs falsely claimed to be a Deputy U.S. Marshal when he submitted a request to a cellphone provider in order to get location information about individuals.

Horn says Edens claimed he needed the information to rescue kidnapped children, but instead used it to help him with his job of repossessing vehicles.

Edens pleaded guilty to six counts of false impersonation in September. He was sentenced Wednesday to one year and one day in prison and ordered to serve three years of supervised release and pay a special assessment of $600.
