TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Prosecutors say a Florida man who received more than $1.9 million in coronavirus relief funds faces up to 20 years in federal prison for laundering most of the money through a fake business and purchasing a luxury car and a pickup truck. The U.S. attorney’s office in Tampa says 48-year-old Keith William Nicoletta pleaded guilty Monday to a conspiracy to launder stolen COVID relief funds. Prosecutors say Nicoletta falsely claimed on a loan application last May that he had a scrap metal business with 69 employees and a monthly payroll of more than $760,000. Authorities say none of the money he received was used for payroll.
