Last week, a Madison man was sentenced to 6 months in prison after officials found him guilty of lying under oath in a bankruptcy hearing in 2008.
The 56-year old filed for chapter 7 bankruptcy in 2006 listing $19,000 in liabilities. After his initial filing, the man failed to show up at hearing or turn in required bankruptcy documents for around 17 months.
In March of 2008, the man appeared at a bankruptcy hearing and, under oath, testified that he had provided a tax return to a bankruptcy trustee. The trustee later learned that this was not true.
