CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire man could face more than 30 years in prison after pleading guilty to bank fraud and to making false statements on nine loan applications.

Federal prosecutors say 28-year-old Christopher Jordan Bailey of Brentwood pleaded guilty this week in U.S. District Court in Concord.

Bailey also pleaded guilty to a charge of stolen valor for falsely claiming he had served in the U.S. Marines and had been awarded a Purple Heart and Silver Star to improve his odds of getting the loans.

He faces a maximum sentence of 30 years on the bank fraud and false statements convictions, and a year on the stolen valor count.

He is scheduled to be sentenced July 28.
