NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) _ A Stamford man is facing sentencing for obtaining hundreds of computer networking parts from Cisco Systems, Inc. through aliases, business entities and post office boxes and shipping addresses.

Craig A. Stanland is scheduled to be sentenced Tuesday in federal court in New Haven.

Prosecutors say Stanland used alias to make hundreds of false service requests to Cisco to replace purportedly defective computer networking parts.

Authorities say Stanland sold the new parts to third parties to enrich himself and returned no parts or sent to Cisco third-party, off-brand parts.

Prosecutors say the total loss to Cisco was about $834,000.

His lawyer asked he be spared prison, calling him a fundamentally good person who made a serious error in judgment.
