Man admits to fraud scheme, assaulting agents

( KTRS ) An Illinois man has pleaded guilty to charges related to a fraud scheme and assaulting the Secret Service agents who arrested him.

Jason Cripe, formerly of Windsor, Illinois, pleaded guilty Wednesday in U.S. District Court to one count of wire fraud and one count of assaulting a law enforcement officer. Federal prosecutors say Cripe claimed to have repossessed vehicles and commercial equipment for sale from 2011 to this year. He took deposits from buyers but never delivered the products.

A warrant was issued for his arrest and Secret Service agents confronted him in St. Louis County on July 8. Cripe then reportedly fought  with the agents and rammed his car into theirs.

Sentencing has been set for Jan. 13.
