Florida Man Birthday October 23

Florida man jailed for two years after lying to authorities about hurricane damage

The accident occurred in Jacksonville, Florida. A Florida man lied to authorities about Hurricane Irma, which wreaked havoc across the state, to take advantage of disaster relief funds. When the man was found lying, he was sentenced to two years in prison.

Deontry Gavan Taylor, 27, who is serving a two-year sentence, tried to profit from statewide disaster relief by lying to authorities about the damage caused by Hurricane Irma. Taylor attended a federal court hearing in Jacksonville on Friday and was sentenced to prison, according to court records.

Court records indicated that the sentence was not limited to imprisonment only. Because Taylor will also have to repay the relief money he received from the federal government. Taylor admitted to committing disaster relief fraud in an investigation in June.

Taylor filed with FEMA in September 2017, according to documents in court records. The reason for his request was that his house was damaged by Hurricane Irma. Taylor stated in his application that his house was flooded and that he was experiencing electrical surges due to lightning.

In addition to all of this, Taylor claimed he could no longer stay at home, moved into a hotel and needed help with accommodation. Then the Federal Emergency Management Agency paid him $8038.19. It is not known exactly what and where this money received by Taylor was spent.

After investigations by FEMA investigators, it was determined that Taylor had not actually been living in his home since 2015 and that his home was not damaged during Hurricane Irma. Hurricane Irma caused extensive damage across the state in September 2017.
