ERIE, Pa. A Pennsylvania car dealer is getting two years and nine months in federal prison for faking military honors and cashing more than $200,000 in counterfeit checks.

Dale Farr was sentenced Tuesday in federal court in Erie after pleading guilty in August to falsifying military decorations and bank fraud.

Farr lived in the Erie suburb of North East when the FBI began investigating him. He has since moved to Troy, Bradford County.

The 34-year-old former Army private, who never saw combat, was accused of telling people he had earned honors for service in Afghanistan. The FBI says he bought medals and misrepresented them as ones he earned.
