    VENTURA, California – District Attorney Gregory D. Totten announced today that Raymond Merkley (DOB 10/22/78), of Woodland Hills, was sentenced to two years in prison by Judge Bruce Young. In March 2019, Merkley pled guilty to presenting a fraudulent auto insurance claim and also admitted previously sustaining two prior convictions where prison sentences were imposed.

    In November 2016, while illegally off-roading in Hungry Valley State Park, Merkley’s truck sustained significant damage. Afterwards, Merkley repeatedly lied to his insurance carrier about when and how these off-roading damages actually occurred. Prior to being sentenced today, Merkley paid full restitution in the amount of $3,821 to the insurance carrier he defrauded. At the sentencing hearing, Merkley requested a stay of his prison sentence which was denied by the court. Merkley was then immediately remanded into the custody of the Ventura County Sheriff to begin serving his prison sentence.
