SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A 21-year-old fast-food employee has been sentenced to probation and six months in jail for double-swiping the credit cards of customers who irritated him.
Travis Dominguez pleaded guilty to one count of credit card fraud, a third-degree felony. He was accused of doubled-swiping cards at the Midvale Taco Bell where he worked five times, putting in different amounts on the second swipe between 20 and 30 dollars.
The judge ordered a psychological evaluation and 142 dollars restitution, and barred Dominguez from employment involving financial transactions.
He had faced five felony counts of unlawful use of a credit card and single misdemeanor counts of theft and obstruction of justice.
It's unclear where the money from the double-swiping went. Dominguez told police he didn't pocket it, but police say the cash didn't show up at the restaurant.
