MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A Milwaukee man will spend five years in prison for filing false liens against a number of criminal justice personnel.
35-year-old Cornelius Hill was originally charged with a dozen felony counts of criminal title slander.
The state Justice Department said Friday that Hill was sentenced in Dane County to five years in prison, plus five years of extended supervision on five of the 12 charges.
Circuit Judge William Hanrahan also ordered five years of probation on a sixth count, and he stayed sentences on the other six.
State prosecutors said Hill filed false liens against police officers who arrested Hill on various charges -- plus judges, prosecutors, and defense attorneys.
He claimed that each of those people owed him anywhere from a half-million dollars to $210 million.
