NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) – A former Waterbury State Representative has been sentenced to one year probation after his conviction on conspiracy to commit bank fraud. Victor Cuevas, 52 of Bristol, was sentenced Monday to one year probation and a $1,000 fine in a home mortgage scheme.

Cuevas told the mortgage bank that he had been gifted $7,000 to be used to help by the property but in reality had agreed to pay the money back. The FHA loan was used to buy a home in Bristol.

Cuevas plead guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit bank fraud in June.
