Man to be sentenced for impersonating soldier


A sentencing hearing has been set for May 23 for Anthony Todd Saxon, who, prosecutors say, wore a combat uniform to Fort Gordon last summer to get access to military gear.

Saxon pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in January to impersonating a soldier and two gun charges as part of a plea deal. Prosecutors dropped four other counts.

The three charges carry a maximum sentence of 23 years in prison. Saxon's guilty plea is expected to earn him a lighter sentence, however.

Prosecutors say Saxon hasn't served in the military since 1994, when he was discharged from the Florida National Guard.
