CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A Charleston man has been sentenced to three years and one month in federal prison for a time-share property fraud scheme.

Thirty-five-year-old David Brandon Ball also was ordered to pay about $211,000 in restitution Wednesday in federal court in Charleston.

According to court records, Ball admitted that he and associate David Andrew Glynn set up a company used to defraud time-share owners of money. Time-share owners were told the company had buyers for their properties and were asked to send fees and expenses necessary to complete the sales.

Ball and his associates also posed as agents of a fictitious entity investigating time-share fraud schemes and asked victims of prior schemes to send money to assist with recovery efforts.

Glynn previously was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison.
