JANESVILLE, Indiana — Deanna Voss spoke in a choked voice Friday to a Rock County courtroom filled with Troy Tofte's victims.
She explained how being defrauded by the former RV salesman had devastated her family monetarily, emotionally and physically.
Tofte, 48, of Evansville, swindled Voss and her husband out of nearly $28,000, jeopardizing their 55-year marriage. Voss said her husband is now convinced everyone is out to get him because of what Tofte did, according to a story by the Gazette Extra.
