Mail fraud has a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and a maximum fine of $250,000. The aggravated identity theft count carries a minimum term of 2 years in prison.

Lubker admitted to defrauding Medstaff Locums, a medical staffing company based in Chicago. Court documents said Lubker stole $400,000 by creating phantom employees within the company between 2009 and earlier this year. He would tell his employer he’d placed a medical professional when there was no placement and then siphon portions of the employees’ payments for himself.
