ROCHESTER, NY (WROC) - The five Florida men charged in a fraud case against Xerox have been indicted.

Robert Lee Fisher, David Haynes, Kyle Haynes, Jason Haynes and Bryan Day have been indicted on charges of wire fraud, conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, and conspiracy to commit money laundering.

As part of the scheme, prosecutors say Fisher, an authorized reseller for Xerox, provided 63 printers to the Haynes brothers and Day for a fake company they set up.

As part of the agreement for the printers, the brothers and Day paid Xerox for toner based on how much they printed. Prosecutors say the brothers misrepresented how much they were printing, using far more toner than average, to sell the toner -- including selling $11 million in toner to a person in Florida. The profits were shared with Fisher, prosecutors say.

Investigators said the defendants claimed to be making millions of prints, but some of the printers were still in boxes. The deception cost Xerox $25 million, prosecutors said.

If convicted, the defendants face up to 20 years in prison.
