SPRING HILL — Glenn and Kathryn Jasen of Spring Hill have been indicted on a charge of wire fraud, a federal felony, resulting from allegations of sinkhole fraud.

The couple were arrested last week and posted bail. Each faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted of the charge. He is 64; she is 63.

The Jasens are accused of making a sinkhole claim on their home on Kimball Court in 2009 and pocketing the $153,745 in claim money they received through Citizens Property Insurance Co. rather than repairing the sinkhole and the home, according to the federal case file.

At some point between the finding of the sinkhole and 2014, some cosmetic repairs were made to the house, according to court files. The Jasens decided to sell the property in 2014, and a buyer stepped forward to make the purchase. As part of that process, in February 2014, Glenn Jasen filled out a seller’s disclosure form, initialed each page and then signed at the end.
