MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Two south Alabama men have been given 10-year sentences for filing fraudulent liens against Coffee County public officials.

Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange said in a statement Thursday that 70-year-old William Peter Witwicki and 64-year-old Travis Lambert were sentenced for filing false documents and are scheduled to appear at a probation hearing July 30.

Strange says the two filed fraudulent liens against two circuit judges, a sheriff and a circuit clerk. Strange says the pair demanded that the county officials pay Witwicki $89.2 million in silver coins.
