Oshkosh man sentenced for metal scam

A judge has sentenced a businessman to more than a decade in prison, for scheming to cheat a Fond Du Lac firm out of $14 million.

Sterling Kienbaum of Oshkosh was sentenced to 11 years in prison and 3 years of extended supervision.

Prosecutors say Kienbaum ran a metal business and paid employees at Sadoff Iron & Metal to accept scrap vehicles filled with dirt, falsely inflating the metal content.

Kienbaum paid $6 million in restitution before he was sentenced.
