MONROE, La. (AP) - Federal prosecutors say a lawyer from Benton has been sentenced to two years and 10 months in prison for bankruptcy fraud.

U.S. Attorney Stephanie Finley says in a news release that Glay H. Collier II pleaded guilty last year. Prosecutors said he collected filing fees from clients without informing the bankruptcy court.

Finley’s release said that between March 2010 and November 2013, Collier filed 983 Chapter 13 bankruptcy cases in Monroe and 2,160 Chapter 13 bankruptcy cases in Shreveport. Finley said fraud was involved in 479 of those cases.
