Wyoming Man Serves Jail Time Under Another’s Name

GILLETTE, WY. (AP) — A 30-year-old man in Wyoming served another man’s two-day jail sentence after using a fake name when he was arrested and went before a court.

According to court records, when a Campbell County sheriff’s deputy stopped Hans Heller on Aug. 18, Heller gave a false name because he was trying to avoid arrest on interference with a peace officer and failure to comply with child support and other charges. The Gillette News Record reports there was an active warrant for the name Heller provided and a Circuit Court judge sentenced him to two days in jail.

Days later, a deputy noticed Heller’s picture didn’t match the name Heller used.

Heller was arrested on warrants including perjury and forgery. It couldn’t immediate be determined if Heller had an attorney.
