LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- An Indianapolis man is going to jail for three years, and will have to pay back as much as $141,000 to a Lafayette company.

Brian Nehrig was sentenced Friday for corrupt business influence and theft.

According to court documents, Nehrig worked for Schilli Transportation services on Brady Lane until March 2015.

He was supposed to handle insurance claims for the company, but he and a co-conspirator pocketed many of the payouts through 2014.

Schilli Transporation said Nehring also altered records to make the thefts harder to detect.

From November 2013 to October 2014, he deposited at least ten checks from various claims, ranging from $3,495.37 to $21,543.33. Prosecutors say he also gave nearly $30,000 dollars to his accused co-conspirator, Marc Bumbalough.

After his time in the Department of Corrections is up, Nehring will spend two years in Community Corrections and one on probation.
