Man repays insurance money with tons of coins

MARION, Ill. (AP) — A southern Illinois businessman paid off a portion of a court-ordered legal settlement with nearly four tons of quarters packed into dozens of bags.

Roger Herrin of Harrisburg was ordered by an appellate court to repay $500,000 in insurance money related to the 2001 death of his teenage son, who was killed in a car accident.

The reimbursement followed years of legal disputes about how the insurance money was apportioned to the wreck’s victims.

So in protest, Herrin repaid nearly a third of the money — $150,000 — with 50-pound bags of quarters he had trucked in by the Federal Reserve bank in St. Louis. The coins were delivered Wednesday to a Marion law firm.

Herrin says he did it with quarters only because pennies weren’t feasible.
