Marine work to resume on new TZ Bridge

NEW YORK – A New Jersey man was sentenced in Manhattan federal court to ten years and one month in prison for his participation in a long-running automobile insurance fraud scheme and aggravated identity theft.  As part of the scheme, Scott Eric Sanders, who owns fleets of commercial vehicles, systematically misled insurance companies as to where the vehicles he owned were garaged and operated, and how those vehicles were being used, so that he could obtain automobile insurance for those vehicles at substantially lower premiums. 

Sanders, 42, of Saddle River, New Jersey, was convicted in April 2013 of one count of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, five counts of mail fraud, and one count of aggravated identity theft following a four-week jury trial.  He was also sentenced to three years of supervised release and ordered to pay a fine of $50,000, restitution of almost $4.9 million, and forfeiture of the same amount.
