Man convicted of cheating elderly Eau Claire man out of nearly $20,000


Eau Claire (WQOW) - Sentence is handed down for a man convicted of cheating an elderly rural Eau Claire man out of nearly $20,000.

Detectives say the 80-year old man agreed to sell 34-head of cattle to Luke Kottke.  But Kottke's check for nearly $19,000 bounced.  Investigators said Kottke never had more than $3,000 in his account.

Kottke has already made full restitution. He was put on probation Thursday, and ordered to do five days of community service.
