Denver (AP) - A 46-year-old man has pleaded guilty to stealing the identities of nearly two dozen Coloradans in 10 counties, forging checks in their names and getting away with more than $24,000 during a six-month crime spree.

Colorado Attorney General John Suthers said Monday that Timothy Kuskowski pleaded guilty to theft, identity theft and forgery, all felonies. He faces from eight to 24 years in prison when he's sentenced Oct. 5 in Summit County Court.

Kuskowski was indicted in April on 25 counts of identity theft, forgery, theft and criminal impersonation. He was accused of forging names on checks he cashed and tried to cash at businesses in Eagle, Fremont, Garfield, Grand, Gunnison, Jefferson, Mesa, Montrose, Summit and Teller Counties between Dec. 30, 2007 and June 10, 2008.
