Man Gets Prison Term For Scamming Air Charter Firm

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Federal prosecutors in New Jersey say a Florida man is headed to prison for posing as a high-level executive with a financial firm to improperly obtain charter jet flights and limo rides.

Dante Dixon, a 46-year-old Miami resident who also lives in Akron, Ohio, received a 37-month sentence Tuesday. That term will run consecutively to a one-year sentence he received for violating his supervised release in another case.

Dixon also must pay $220,957 in restitution and will serve three years of supervised release once he’s freed from prison. He had pleaded guilty last December to a charge of conspiracy to commit wire fraud.

Prosecutors say Dixon and others conspired to fraudulently obtain at least three flights last year through Jet Aviation, a major business aviation provider based at Teterboro Airport.
