Herrin Man Sentenced For Bank Fraud
Stephen R. Wigginton, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, announced today that Mark P. Troehler, 39, of Herrin, Illinois, was sentenced in United States District Court in Benton, Illinois on one count of Bank Fraud.
Troehler was sentenced to two months in federal prison followed by two months of home confinement, three years supervised released, and ordered to pay $80,190 in restitution to the Bank of Marion, the victim of the fraud. Troehler previously pled guilty to submitting false lien waivers to the Bank of Marion where he had taken out a construction loan. Troehler, who was at the time a contractor, took out a loan from the bank to build a home in Herrin, Illinois, and then utilized the funds for personal and unrelated business expenses, while supplying false documents to the bank indicating the funds were being used to build the home.
The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Ranley R. Killian.
