The co-founder of the former Wentzville-based U.S. Fidelis auto warranty company, Darain Atkinson, was sentenced Monday for the second time in two weeks.
On Monday, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Atkinson's sentencing in St. Charles Circuit Court on state charges for Atkinson's part in the U.S. Fidelis/National Auto Warranty Services fraud case.
Last week, Atkinson received an eight-year sentence on federal charges, along with an order to pay $4.5 million in back taxes.
Darain Atksinson's brother Cory Atkinson was sentenced to 40 months in federal prison and $4.49 million in back taxes, along with a four-year sentence for state charges.
A bankruptcy settlement in July approved a $26.5 million payment that will be divided among customers and creditors.
The brothers lived a lavish lifestyle, maintaining estates in Lake Saint Louis and Wentzville.
