ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - A 50-year-old Rochester man has pleaded guilty to bank fraud in federal court.

U.S. Attorney William Hochul says Henry Joseph Williams entered his plea Tuesday before U.S. District Judge Frank Geraci. The charge carries a maximum penalty of 30 years in prison and a million-dollar fine. Sentencing is Nov. 8.

Prosecutors say Williams opened accounts at two banks last summer and used his ATM cards to run up more than $8,000 in charges, which he then disputed by claiming his cards had been stolen.

At the time, Williams was on supervised release for a 2012 federal wire fraud conviction.
