The mastermind behind a credit card skimming scheme at some of Chicago's favorite places to eat is going to prison.

Joseph Woods, 32, pled guilty to conspiracy charges Tuesday and was sentenced to five years in prison.

Prosecutors say Woods ran a group that paid workers to swipe patrons' credit card data through a reader.

That information was then used to make fraudulent purchases.

Wrigley Field was one of the targets, as was Michigan Avenue's RL Restaurant.
