INDIANOLA, Iowa (AP) — A former Indianola city attorney has been ordered to pay the city $35,333 in restitution after being found guilty of fraudulently overbilling the city.
The Des Moines Register reported Thursday that the restitution order comes after John Hoyman was sentenced in February to 10 years in prison for the fraudulent billing.
Hoyman was arrested in May 2013 after a state audit discovered that Hoyman had put false names of clients on bills that he was submitting to the city. The audit said Hoyman filed nearly $91,000 in overbillings to the city during a six-year period.
Hoyman acknowledged using fake names from the phone book on his invoices, but said he never obtained any money he didn't deserve from the city.
Hoyman is appealing.
