An Oakville man who confessed to mail fraud and aggravated identity theft in September was sentenced to 94 months in prison Tuesday in a case investigated by the FBI and prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
William Lubker, 51, will also have to forfeit the money he earned from his illegal activities, including jewelry, a Rolex watch, a Breitling watch and three firearms.

Mail fraud has a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and a maximum fine of $250,000. The aggravated identity theft count carries a minimum term of 2 years in prison.
Lubker admitted to defrauding Medstaff Locums, a medical staffing company based in Chicago. Court documents said Lubker stole $400,000 by creating phantom employees within the company between 2009 and earlier this year. He would tell his employer he'd placed a medical professional when there was no placement and then siphon portions of the employees’ payments for himself.
