ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – A St. Louis man who once impersonated a federal officer to get a lover to lend him money, is back in legal trouble over a Purple Heart recipient impersonation.

Federal prosecutors say 46-year-old Mark Chartrand pleaded guilty to a stolen valor act charge, and faces up to a year in prison a $100 thousand fine, or both.

Using the alias “Mark Rhodes,” Chartrand bilked an Air BnB host in California out of cash and credit.
