Ex-DMV official sentenced to 18 months in prison

READ MORE:

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.
