PITTSBURGH — A Pittsburgh man has been sentenced to eight months in federal prison for what a prosecutor called an elaborate scheme to steal Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen’s identity and spend $658 using a credit card in Allen’s name last year.

Brandon Lee Price, 30, should serve his term in a halfway house downtown, the judge recommended, but federal prison officials are not bound by that suggestion.
