LOS ANGELES (AP) – An insurance broker who overcharged Tom Hanks and his wife, Rita Wilson, hundreds of thousands of dollars has been sentenced to more than two years in federal prison.

Prosecutors in Los Angeles say that between 1998 and 2011, Jerry Goldman inflated premiums by as much as 600 percent and created phony invoices to hide the scam. According to City News Service, Goldman was ordered to pay about $840,000 in restitution.
