Tallahassee Men Face Federal Conspiracy and Fraud Charges

Josh Stetson and Craig Wiggen are both facing federal conspiracy and fraud charges.

The duo was arraigned in Tallahassee's federal court Thursday morning and promptly plead guilty.

Alex Morris, Wiggen's attorney, says, "It becomes a decision as to whether or not the defendant needs to push something into a trial courtroom or not or whether or not there may be a necessity to accept responsibility."

The pair was arrested in May, accused of concocting a scheme to skim customer credit card numbers at Tia's Tex Mex restaurant and use them to buy $12,000 worth of stuff.

Sentencing is set for February. The men could face up to a year in federal prison for it all.
