ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Men from Oregon and Pennsylvania have been sentenced to prison terms for conspiring to defraud a New Mexico company that sells therapeutic elastic tape and related products.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for New Mexico said 43-year-old Johannes Jarvis of Portland, Oregon, and 68-year-old John A. “Jack” Hope of Huntingdon Valley, Pennsylvania, were sentenced Thursday in federal court in Albuquerque to nearly four years and over three years in prison, respectively.

Jarvis and Hope also were ordered to pay $2 million of restitution to New Mexico-based Kinesio USA LLC.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office said both men pleaded guilty in 2014 and that Jarvis previously was director of marketing for Kinesio and that Hope owned a printing business that was hired to produce marketing materials for Kinesio.
