An insurance broker who cheated actor Tom Hanks and his wife out of hundreds of thousands of dollars was sentenced Monday to 27 months in federal prison.

Jerry Goldman will also have to pay over $840,000 in restitution, the Associated Press reports. Prosecutors say that between 1998 and 2011, Goldman inflated premiums by 600 percent and printed fake invoices to cover his tracks.

Goldman pleaded guilty to mail fraud involving scam against Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson.
