ALEXANDRIA, La. (AP) — A federal magistrate has ordered the garnishment of money from a life insurance policy owned by former Ball Mayor Roy Hebron, who is serving a four-year prison sentence for defrauding a federal agency.

The Town Talk reports ( ) U.S. Magistrate Judge James D. Kirk signed the order Tuesday to cash in $32,429, the surrender value of the insurance policy, to help pay restitution to the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Hebron in early 2011 pleaded guilty to one count of defrauding FEMA by overbilling for Hurricane Gustav cleanup in 2008.

He was sentenced in May 2011 and ordered to pay FEMA almost $131,000 for money stolen.
