(KSL News) Two Utah men were sentenced today for scamming millions of dollars from schools across the country.
According to court documents and trial evidence--from 1999 to May of 2004--Cameron Lewis and his father, Tyron Lewis, operated National School Fitness Foundation (NSFF), a company that promised "free" fitness equipment to hundreds of school districts.
The districts paid NSFF with the understanding they would be reimbursed through government grants and private donations, which never existed or materialized.
Cameron Lewis was sentenced to 17 years in prison. Tyron Lewis was sentenced to more than five years behind bars. Both must pay more than $39 million in restitution.
