1. Goff sentenced to prison
WFSA 12 News Montgomery AL

A former Montgomery insurance executive who was convicted of mail
fraud, embezzlement and filing a false report with the state insurance
department four months ago learned his fate Tuesday afternoon. He'll
spend the next 12 years in prison.

At one time John Goff was the prominent owner of a company that
handled workers' compensation insurance. The prominence faded,
however, as the government began claiming he took money from
clients for coverage but never sent it to insurance companies.

His headquarters was located just off Interstate 85 until five years
ago. His empire fell when a jury found him guilty of taking money from
clients like churches, businesses, and other organizations. The
money never made it to the insurance companies it was intended to.

He still says he's the victim in this case, however.

Court papers indicate Goff used the money to fund a lavish lifestyle.
He made a salary of  more than $1 million, flew around in a private jet,
slept in a million dollar home and belonged to an exclusive country
club. Now, Goff says he's broke and doesn't know how he'll pay it
back.
