Former Hooker Man Sentenced In Fraud Case
07/08/2010

A federal judge has sentenced an Oklahoma

City man to four months in prison for falsely claiming he needed

emergency assistance after Hurricane Katrina.

Forty-five-year-old Chad Sterling Holcomb was also ordered on

Wednesday to pay $4,358 in restitution and to serve two years

probation.

U.S. District Judge Timothy DeGiusti sentenced Holcomb after he

admitted in a written statement that he was living in Hooker when

he claimed he had no place to stay after the 2005 storm that

flooded New Orleans and devastated the Mississippi coast.

Holcomb's lawyer said in a court filing that Holcomb had earlier

lived in Louisiana in an area that sustained significant storm

damage, but that he moved to Oklahoma four months before Katrina.
