A businessman has pleaded guilty to three felonies after authorities say he failed to pay golfers their hole-in-one prizes.
Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler says Kolenda has a long history of selling illegal insurance and refusing to pay prize winners. Kreidler's office says similar allegations have been made against Kolenda or his business in Alabama, California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Montana, New York, North Carolina and Ohio.
Kolenda's attorney did not immediately return a call seeking comment Saturday.
