AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- An Augusta man is facing 15 years behind bars after pleading guilty to three counts of bank fraud, one count of wire fraud and one count of aggravated identity theft.

The court says 44-year-old Bryant Keith Evans Webb took over $215,000 from insurance policy proceeds and bank accounts when working at the Peoples Funeral Home of Augusta. The funeral home is now under different ownership.

Webb is also said to have taken over $30,000 from nursing home residents when he worked at the Mother and Daughter Personal Care Home in Augusta.

Webb will serve five years of supervised release after serving his prison sentence.

The judge delayed ordering Webb to pay restitution by 90 days so that other potential victims can come forward.
