BELL COUNTY - A Bell County man will spend the next 10 years in a state prison for scamming the elderly.

Perren Boswell, 36, was arrested in 2007 for telling rural residents near Belton that he works for TxDOT, and would pave their driveways for a discounted price.

He would quote a cost of about $1,500, but make the victims pay much more, sometimes as much as $7,000 to $9,000. The victims felt intimidated and threatened so they made the payments.

In addition to the sentencing on this case, Boswell has trials on three others in the future.
