Peck draws 33 months in prison


Crosslake resident Bruce Peck is returning to prison. 

Peck, 68, was sentenced Thursday to 33 months in prison and ordered to pay $1,154 in fines, fees and restitution for crimes of forging documents belonging to family members and stealing items from a sister’s property. 

It will be Peck’s second prison term. In 2001, he was sentenced to 97 months in federal prison when a jury found him guilty of 80 counts of tax fraud.
