JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A man convicted in an auto insurance scheme is going to prison.

A judge sentenced David Lopez, 46, to 15 years behind bars.

Lopez, according to prosecutors, ran the Indian Rehabilitation Center on University Boulevard.

Authorities said it provided bogus treatment to staged-accident participants for non-existent injuries.

IRCI, according to court documents, bilked insurance companies in excess of $228,000.

More than 30 people, including Lopez, have been prosecuted in the case.

The clinic has since been shut down.
