Furious dad pays back $500,000 in Insurance money for son who died in car crash — with 4 TONS of quarters

4 Tons of Quarters

A retired Illinois foot surgeon paid back a court ordered $500,000 in insurance money the unconventional way — in quarters that weighed 4 tons.

Roger Herrin was awarded $1.6 million in personal insurance compensation when his teenage son, Michael Herrin, was killed in a Jeep crash in 2001. Michael, 15, was the only passenger killed in the crash. Three survivors who were also in the Jeep sued Roger Herrin who collected the bulk of an additional $800,000 insurance policy, since his son was the only one killed.

After a decades long court battle, Herrin was ordered to pay back $500,000 of the $800,000 to the survivors who complained that he received too large a cut of the insurance proceeds.

“I’ve had 10 years to think about this a little bit, and I’m very, very bitter at this ruling,” he said. “It’s wrong, and everybody knows it’s wrong.”

Some homeowners hold off the banks by leasing their mansions to the entertainment industry for music videos and movies.
