 NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) _ A California man has been sentenced to serve 15 months in prison and ordered to pay $78,000 in restitution for his role in a scheme to defraud Franklin-based Nissan North America.
According to the U.S. attorney's office in Nashville, Bruce Young and others helped gather information on Nissan owners and former Nissan employee Kenneth Carter filed and approved false claims requesting settlement checks. Prosecutors say Young and others directed the Nissan owners to ``kick back'' a portion of the settlement.
According to court documents, Nissan paid more than $571,000 on about 80 false claims between March 2007 and April 2008.
All six people charged in the case have pleaded guilty.
The 50-year-old Young, of Compton, California, is the fifth person to be sentenced. Carter is to be sentenced Nov. 14.
