PITTSBURGH, Pa. - A Pennsylvania man whose company scoops up pet poop was sentenced Monday for buying fake Secret Service ID cards and badges online from China to impress women on a dating site.

A federal judge in Pittsburgh imposed a sentence of 2 years probation and a $500 fine Monday on 54-year-old Christopher Diiorio of Greensburg, who pleaded guilty in November to a count of fraudulently using an official seal.

He acknowledged the other behavior alleged by federal prosecutors, including flashing an ID card during a traffic stop and trying to use a Secret Service badge to get a government rate for a hotel room.
