A judge sentenced a Portland man to one year in prison for defrauding a woman out of $26,000. Prosecutors claim Michele Bocci tricked the woman by falsely claiming he needed money to help pay medical expenses for his daughter who was sick with leukemia.

 As part of a deal with Multnomah County prosecutors, Bocci pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated theft in the first degree by deception. He was also ordered to pay $23,000 in restitution.

A KGW investigation in 2017 exposed how Bocci mislead the community, church groups and even police. He claimed to be a decorated U.S. Marine, a war veteran who was left to care for his young children after losing his wife to cancer. The story wasn’t true.
