John Getchius of Bergen County sentenced for insurance fraud

John Getchius of Bergen County sentenced for insurance fraud

Receives eight years for filing over $60,000 in false marine claims

Attorney General Paula T. Dow and Criminal Justice Director Stephen J. Taylor announced that a Bergen County man was sentenced to eight years in state prison Friday for filing more than $60,000 in fraudulent marine insurance claims, state Acting Insurance Fraud Prosecutor Riza Dagli said.

John Getchius, 62, was sentenced by state Superior Court Judge Liliana S. DeAvila-Silebi in Hackensack. Getchius was ordered to pay $25,600 in restitution and agreed to pay a $50,000 civil penalty.

The sentence was based on Gretchius’s guilty plea to two counts of second-degree insurance fraud and two counts of third-degree insurance fraud. The charges were contained in an Aug. 7, 2008 Bergen County grand jury indictment. Getchius failed to appear on Nov. 20, 2009, when he was originally scheduled to be sentenced for these charges but was arrested on Sept. 8 by the Union County sheriff’s officers.
