Glenn and Kathryn Jasen were convicted of wire fraud in October and later sentenced to five years probation and six months of house arrest.

This followed an 8 On Your Side investigation that found that the Jasens pocketed $154,745 from a sinkhole claim.

The Jasens did cosmetic repairs and then sold the home to a young couple without disclosing the sinkhole.
