Poop Scooper Faces Fed Sentencing For Using Fake Ids, Badges

PITTSBURGH (AP) – A Pennsylvania man whose company scoops up pet poop is facing sentencing before a federal judge for buying fake Secret Service identification cards and badges online from China to impress women on a dating site.

Christopher Diiorio pleaded guilty in November to a count of fraudulently using an official seal. He acknowledged the other behavior alleged by federal prosecutors, including flashing an ID card during a traffic stop and trying to use a Secret Service badge to get a government rate for a hotel room.

The 54-year-old Greensburg man remains free on bond and likely faces probation under federal guidelines.

He’s scheduled for sentencing Monday afternoon before a federal judge in Pittsburgh.

Diiorio and his attorney have refused to comment on the charges.
