A South Dakota sheriff's deputy who pleaded guilty in an insurance fraud case has been sentenced to about 2 ½ months in jail and 2 ½ years of probation.
Forty-two-year-old Rob Hotchkiss of Delmont was accused of submitting fraudulent insurance applications to obtain commissions while working for a Sioux Falls agency in 2008. He pleaded guilty early this year to grand theft by deception and then resigned his job as a Douglas County deputy.
Hotchkiss already has paid about $7,000 in restitution.
