Couple sentenced for filing false insurance claims


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A local man and woman were sentenced this week for faking a car accident to get insurance money.     

Police say April Wynn and Jose Velez staged a series of crashes in 2012.     

The pair, who are now married, filed personal injury claims.     

One hundred other people were arrested in the scheme. Wynn and Velez will spend a little over six years in prison.
