Kermit Miller of Martinsburg faces up to 15 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
A federal grand jury indicted Miller in September 2013 on 19 fraud counts. The Herald Mail (http://bit.ly/1emRFj8 ) of Hagerstown, Md., reports that Miller pleaded guilty on Monday in U.S. Magistrate Court to one count of conspiracy to defraud in connection with identification docuemnts.
