Father and son sentenced in insurance fraud case

Posted: Updated:
DELAWARE COUNTY (KWWL) -

A father and son have been sentenced to two years supervised probation after pleading guilty to insurance fraud. 

Richard Hartman, 69, of Manchester and Tobin Hartman, 44, of Ryan plead guilty to third-degree fraudulent practices.

An investigation into the case found that Richard had filed a fraudulent insurance claim to get money to cover damages after claiming to have hit his son's barn, causing it to collapse. His son was charged for giving false claims to support his father's statements. 

The Hartman's asked for over $240,000 to replace the building, but they were unsuccessful in getting the money.
