(KMOV) -- A Missouri car dealer faces charges after he allegedly rolled back odometers on cars before reselling them.

Zane Turner’s odometer currently reads 141,000 miles.

He bought two cards from Excel Auto Group and did not realize until months later that he had been duped.

Turner took one of the cars to get some work done and was told the car had been at the same shop before it was sold to him.

It turns out the car had nearly 10,000 more miles on it a month before the purchase.

“He sat there with me and my wife and kids and looked us in the eye, knowing full well the vehicles had 200,000 or 300,000 miles on them,” Turner said. “And put us in them anyway.”

After turner discovered the problem, dozens of other victims came forward. The dealer, Ashley Bolton, faces eight years in prison.
