SCRANTON — A businessman who had his office in Lackawanna County pleaded guilty Monday in federal court to cheating investors out of $310,000.

August Stile, 49, of Hughestown admits he conned people into thinking they would get a big return on their investments when he actually used the money for himself.

He was indicted on the charges in April.
