SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A man who pleaded guilty to 56 counts of bank and wire fraud is facing more problems with the law.

The U.S. Attorney's office says Jeffrey F. Geddes was scheduled for sentencing Monday, but didn't show up at U.S. District Court. Prosecutors say Geddes also removed an ankle monitor he was ordered to wear. A warrant was issued for his arrest on Monday.

Geddes reached a plea agreement in November, which included a recommended 10-year federal sentence.

Geddes admitted to providing fraudulent invoices and purchase orders to a bank to maintain and increase a line of credit he had opened for a business he owned.
