An Iowa man will serve a 21-month prison sentence and pay $125,003.68 in restitution for attempting to defraud State Farm on two separate occasions years apart, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa.

Timothy D. Sletten, who was also ordered to pay a $50,000 fine, filed a property claim on his residential rental properties after a tornado hit Marshalltown, Iowa, in 2018, according to the U.S. attorney’s office. To ensure his fraudulent claim was successful, Sletten provided fake work invoices to the claims professional.
