Fake Army vet con man gets stiff prison sentence from NYC judge

A career con man who stole a BMW while posing as an Army veteran said he didn’t “know how to fix this” and he was not even going to bother asking for sympathy from the judge.

Good thing, because Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Neil Ross gave Jeremy Wilson him seven to 14 years in prison — and no sympathy whatsoever.

Ross ripped Wilson for his fake soldier act, calling him “the antithesis of these selfless individuals who put their lives on the line for others.”

Wilson, 43, used fake identification to get a luxury Financial District apartment and lease a 2016 BMW X3 with forged documents and checks.
