Sentence extended for former Rhinelander man convicted of insurance fraud
MADISON - A former Rhinelander man will spend even more time in prison for an insurance fraud scheme.

John Henricks was sentenced in federal court in June of 2013. At that time, he was ordered to pay $1.3 million in restitution and spend 10 years in federal prison.


At a hearing yesterday, Federal Judge Barbara Crabb ruled that Henricks has willfully failed to make even minimal efforts to pay restitution.

She added an extra two and a half years to his prison sentence, so Henricks will now serve 12 and a half years.

John Henricks used to own Custom Collision in Rhinelander, during which time he defrauded 19 car insurance companies over the course of six years.

Prosecutors say he also coerced employees into participating in the fraud.

NEWBOLD - Parts of the Northwoods have seen more than blank feet of snow this season. First responders want to make sure that snow doesn't create a public safety concern.

The fluorescent 'fire signs' outside many Northwoods homes help firefighters and other first responders find your home quickly when there's an emergency.

Newbold Fire Chief Mark Fetzer said it's important to keep them clear of snow.

"If we can't see them, neither can whoever is removing the snow from your driveway," said Fetzer. "They may plow it right over, then you won't have a sign there at all."
