BOISE, Idaho (AP) - A Boise man who sold health insurance policies to college students but pocketed some of the money has been sentenced to jail, fined $10,000 and ordered to pay $11,236 in restitution.

Forty-year-old Timothy H. Heffner received the sentence Wednesday in Fourth District Court.

The sentence includes 360 days in jail with all but 30 days suspended. He also received a five-year prison sentence with that suspended and Heffner placed on probation for five years.

Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden in a statement says Heffner in March pleaded guilty to two counts of misappropriation or diversion of fiduciary funds.

Authorities say Heffner took premium money from Boise State University students during the 2014-2015 school year but kept some money rather than providing it to Blue Cross of Idaho.
