TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - A Monmouth County man has pleaded guilty to filing a fraudulent insurance claim related to Superstorm Sandy.

Authorities say 74-year-old Farouk Soliman admitted he attempted to recoup the cost of hiring a demolition firm to raze a barn on his Red Bank property that had been condemned before the storm.

Under terms of a plea agreement, prosecutors will recommend that Soliman be sentenced to 364 days in jail as a condition of probation.
