Neillsville man sentenced for bankruptcy fraud

Posted:

MADISON (WAOW) - A Neillsville man convicted of fraud in concealing assets in a federal bankruptcy proceeding has been sentenced to 30 days in jail and fined $5,000, U.S. Attorney John Vaudreuil said Monday.

Brett Pohle, 45, was also ordered to pay restitution to his bankruptcy creditors of about $4,800, the value of the concealed assets, Vaudreuil said in a statement.

Pohle was accused of concealing nine guns and a camper from creditors and the bankruptcy court in April 2008 and providing a false bill of sale, prosecutors said.

In sentencing Pohle on Friday, U.S. District Judge William Conley said some jail time was appropriate because Pohle's actions went to the heart of both the bankruptcy system and the justice system, Vaudreuil said.
