A convicted fraudster who got out of prison early after completing a drug addiction program was sent back for 2½ more years on Tuesday by a judge who said he was addicted to defrauding people.

U.S. District Judge Ted Stewart sent Christopher D. Hales, 35, back to prison for 30 months for violations of his conditions of parole, finding that Hales had violated federal laws in defrauding his own father. Hales was indicted in 2010 on charges of mail, wire and bank fraud, and money laundering. Those charges involved a real estate scam operation that involved the purchase of properties in Lindon in Utah County and the Mill Creek area of Salt Lake County.
