Bars and bare walls.
These will be what 31-year-old Pasquale Mykal Menyhert will be looking at for the next two and half years, after he was sentenced Tuesday morning in a Yuma Superior courtroom.
The Yuma native accepted a plea deal and was convicted of attempted fraudulent schemes.
The scam all began at the Parish’s Bar and Grill in the Yuma foothills. According to state prosecutors, Menyhert’s girlfriend, 42-year-old Laurie Adey, who was a waitress at the restaurant at the time, would steal credit card information from customers and then pass it on to Menyhert so that he could make purchases.
Menyhert was caught on March 19 in a Yuma hotel room with personal credit card and financial information that belonged to the victims.
Raiding officers also found more than 3 grams of methamphetamine in the room, and for that charge, Menyhert has been sentenced to 48 months of intensive probation to be served immediately after his jail sentence ends.
The 31-year-old has also been ordered to pay back more than $50 to individuals and a bank that he stole from as part of the scheme.
