Man imprisoned for using stolen ID to get care

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A man who authorities said used a stolen identity to get more than $400,000 in medical care from an Ohio State University hospital has been sentenced to three years on prison.

The Columbus Dispatch ( ) reports that 41-year-old Kenneth A. Marshall was sentenced Thursday in Columbus. Authorities say he posed as a South Carolina man for five years.

He said he did it to get better care for his ailments, which he said includes multiple sclerosis. But even his attorney said he probably could have gotten care from Ohio State's Wexner Medical Center or some other hospital with his own identity.

An investigation found that between 1990 and 2008, Marshall had been arrested and charged with at least six counts of forgery, along with other crimes.
