SALISBURY, Md.- Prosecutors announced Friday that a Salisbury man convicted of defrauding several Wicomico County residents out of thousands of dollars has been given 33 years behind bars.  

A Wicomico County Circuit Court judge sentenced 49-year-old Gary Richard Hurwitz to the Department of Correction after he violated the terms of his probation by failing to pay more than $41,000 in restitution to various victims whom he was convicted of having defrauded in 2004-2005. 

Prosecutors said that in one case, Hurwitz claimed to have an arrangement with a local bank where he had access to repossessed all-terrain vehicles. Court records show that in one case, Hurwitz sold seven ATVs to customers and never delivered the merchandise. Prosecutors said that in two other cases, he sold to customers a total of three automobiles that he did not own. 

The Wicomico County State's Attorney's Office thanked Agent Eric Pryor of the Division of Community Supervision for his work in the violation of probation case. Wicomico County State's Attorney Matthew A. Maciarello also commended Senior Assistant State's Attorney, Paul Montemuro and Senior Assistant State's Attorney Patrizia Coletta who prosecuted this case.
