LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - A grand jury has indicted a Las Cruces man on fraud charges for allegedly using another person’s credit card.

Prosecutors say 48-year-old Stephen Siddall was indicted on six counts of fraudulent use of a credit card without the cardholder’s consent.

They are all fourth-degree felonies.

District Attorney Mark D’Antonio says Siddall faces a possible sentence of up to 18 months in prison per count if he’s convicted.

Siddall may also face an enhanced sentence for previous convictions.

Prosecutors say Siddall is accused of using a credit card without authorization on multiple occasions over a four day period. The total amount of unauthorized charges was more than $900.

It was unclear Wednesday if Siddall has a lawyer yet.
