DALLAS (AP) - A North Texas man has been convicted of passing more than $300,000 in worthless checks during a five-year scam with a bank executive.

Prosecutors in Dallas on Wednesday announced 45-year-old Jason Dvorin of Southlake has been convicted of conspiracy to commit bank fraud.

Dvorin remains free on bond pending sentencing in July. He faces up to 30 years in prison, a $1 million fine and being ordered to make restitution.

Investigators say Dvorin had a deal with Chris Derrington, who was a vice president of Pavillion Bank in Richardson, to deposit worthless checks. Dvorin then received immediate access to the funds. Prosecutors say the scheme led to more than 200 fraudulent deposits.

Derrington last May pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit bank fraud and awaits sentencing.
