Ex-DMV official sentenced to 18 months in prison


FAYETTEVILLE, NC (AP) -- A former head in the state Division of Motor Vehicles regional law enforcement office in Fayetteville will begin serving an 18-month sentence in federal prison for mail fraud in April.

The Fayetteville Observer reported that 54-year-old Bill Toman also must pay $15,000 in restitution.

Toman had pleaded guilty in November to three counts of mail fraud. He was arrested in 2009, when he was leading a 12-county region of DMV law enforcement offices in Fayetteville.

Court documents say Toman was accused of pocketing $15,000 he solicited from three insurance companies under the claim that the money would be used for law enforcement.

He begins serving his sentence April 1.

Justice is Really Served

Its interesting to read that if you are convicted of Mail Fraud and work for the DMV - a prison sentence is handed down. If you work for the Dept.of Social Services in Alamance County, N.C. and commit a Fel. Fraud -- you get a slap on the wrist, supervised probation, and a promise to re-pay the $4,500. embezzled.
