LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — A Texas man has been sentenced to two years in prison for theft and for stealing the identities of patients at an Arkansas hospital where he was an orderly.

Federal court records show 28-year-old Sir John Ashley Holliday of Dallas was sentenced Thursday in U.S. District Court in Little Rock after pleading guilty in May to aggravated identity theft and theft of government funds. Holliday was also ordered to pay $13,191 in restitution to the Internal Revenue Service.

Holliday entered the plea as part of an agreement in which seven charges against him were dismissed.

Holliday admitted that he stole the names and social security numbers of patients at the Arkansas State Hospital in Little Rock and used the information to file fraudulent federal income tax returns and receive refunds.
