MOUNT HOLLY, N.J. (AP) - A former emergency medical services chief who falsified patient care records in order to bilk insurance companies has been sentenced to 30 days in jail.

Donald Horner had pleaded guilty last month to insurance fraud and tampering with public records charges. His jail sentence was handed down Monday.

The 67-year-old must make restitution, forfeit his emergency medical technician certification, perform community service and pay a $1,300 fine.

Burlington County prosecutors say Horner altered reports 27 times when he served as chief of the Delran Emergency Squad to conceal his certification had expired. Eleven of the altered reports resulted in insurers paying out $4,307.

The squad’s license to operate was suspended in 2018 and Horner resigned soon after.
