Probation sentence issued for Cortland car dealer

SYCAMORE – The former office manager of Silver Star Motors in Cortland was sentenced to four years of probation Wednesday after pleading guilty to eight counts of identity theft.

Eric M. Wrigley, of the 1200 block of Christopher Court in Elgin, used personal information or documents from eight people to fraudulently obtain vehicle financing in their name between September and January, court records show. In each instance. the amount financed was more than $2,000 but less than $10,000.

Wrigley also must serve six months in the DeKalb County Jail, but was given credit for 96 days he served while the case was pending.

Wrigley was arrested in March, weeks after Silver Star Motors owner Terry Morrow Jr., was charged with identity theft on Jan. 29. Morrow also has been charged with 18 cases of identity theft in Missouri, where he lived before opening Silver Star Motors in April 2012.

Morrow is due in DeKalb County court today for a status hearing.
