Credit card skimming ring leader going to prison

July 17, 2012 (CHICAGO)

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.
