PANAMA CITY, Fla. -- An Indian man living in Florida has been sentenced to seven years in federal prison for arranging more than 80 fraudulent marriages.

Court records show that 47-year-old Ravi Babu Kolla was sentenced Thursday in Panama City federal court. He pleaded guilty earlier this year to conspiracy to commit marriage and visa fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering.

Homeland Security Investigations says about $700,000 passed through Kolla's bank accounts during their investigation.
