Pennsylvania Man Sentenced for Committing Aggravated Identity Theft While on Federal Supervised Release


SCRANTON, PA — The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that Robert Cagle, age 57, of Scranton, Pennsylvania, was sentenced on April 4, 2022, to 24 months imprisonment to be followed by a 1-year term of supervised release, by United States District Court Judge Robert D. Mariani, for Aggravated Identity Theft. Because Cagle engaged in this new criminal conduct while serving a prior term of federal supervised release, Judge Mariani also sentenced Cagle to a consecutive 18 months imprisonment for the supervised release violation, resulting in a total, an aggregate sentence of 42 months’ imprisonment.

According to United States Attorney John C. Gurganus, on December 4, 2019, Cagle used the personal identification information of a Florida man to open a line of credit in the victim’s name in an attempt to purchase a cellular phone plan. Cagle engaged in this conduct while he was serving a term of federal supervised release that had been imposed in connection with similar identity theft and fraud offenses committed by Cagle in 2014.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) – Philadelphia Division and the Wilkes-Barre Township Police Department. Assistant United States Attorney Jeffery St. John prosecuted the case.
