A Guilford man has been indicted by a grand jury for allegedly selling fraudulent artwork.
The grand jury returned a 12-count indictment against David Crespo, 58, charging him with mail and wire fraud.

Crespo was charged with nine counts of wire fraud and three counts of mail fraud.
He faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison on each count if convicted.
