(KTIV) – A judge has sentenced a northeast Nebraska man for defrauding banks in Iowa and Nebraska.
Court records say 32-year-old Joshua Huffman, of Lyons, was given three months behind bars, and five years of supervised release.
He also was told to pay restitution to Washington County Bank, in Blair, Nebraska, and United Bank of Iowa, in Ida Grove, Iowa.
Prosecutors say Huffman gave false and fraudulent financial statements to the banks to obtain loans for his farming operation from December 2014 through May 2015.
Huffman defaulted on the loans, so United Bank of Iowa suffered a loss of about $320,000, and Washington County Bank suffered a loss of almost $14,000.
