AEHI's former exec sentenced for fraud
A former executive of a company that at one point wanted to build a nuclear power plant in Mountain Home was sentenced to 30 months in prison during a hearing last week.
Jennifer R. Ransom, 41, of Meridian, was also placed on three years of supervised release -- the first six months of which is home confinement -- for securities fraud, U.S. Attorney Wendy J. Olson announced.
Senior U.S. District Judge Edward J. Lodge also ordered Ransom to forfeit $580,780 and pay $116,138 in restitution to victim-investors. She pleaded guilty to one count of securities fraud last April as part of a plea agreement.
