A man who impersonated a fervently Orthodox Jew for years was given a prison sentence for using a stolen identity. Ted Riley Floyd caused a stir earlier this year when it was discovered that he had lived as Nathaniel James Levi with his wife and children in the Orthodox enclave of Lakewood, N.J. Floyd, 28, was sentenced Monday to a year and a day in prison followed by three years of probation, the Wichita Eagle reported. Floyd, a former resident of that Kansas city, also is barred from using any name but his own or from legally changing his name without permission from his probation officer. Friends of the family say Floyd’s wife will remain in Lakewood, where she has undergone an Orthodox conversion.
