    A Vermont man convicted of wire fraud for defrauding a Maine town is facing his sentencing in a Bangor federal court room.

    Prosecutors say Craig Sanborn of Maidstone will be sentenced at 10 a.m. on Wednesday. A judge convicted him in May of submitting $300,000 worth of false invoices to Brownville, Maine, for materials and services he never bought. He faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

    Sanborn is asking that his sentence run at the same time as his 10-to-20-year sentence for manslaughter in New Hampshire. He was convicted in 2013 of two counts of negligent homicide and manslaughter in connection with a fatal 2010 explosion at a Colebrook gunpowder plant.
