The U.S. Attorneys Office for the Central District of California issued a press release telling of the 25 year sentence of an individual who was found guilty after a jury trial. The release states:
"A Southern California man found guilty of bilking the customers of Employers Mutual LLC – a company that falsely purported to provide health care coverage to more than 20,000 people across the United States – was sentenced today to 25 years in federal prison and was ordered to pay more than $20 million in restitution."
James Graf was "found guilty by a federal jury in Los Angeles in late 2005 of conspiracy, five counts of mail fraud, 10 counts of misappropriation in connection with a health care benefit program, six counts of money laundering and one count of obstruction of justice." The press release notes "that Employers Mutual, LLC is unrelated to Employers Mutual Insurance Company of Des Moines, Iowa."
