GOSHEN -

An Orange County couple accused of keeping a developmentally disabled man in their barn for a decade has been sentenced for tax fraud.

John Quick and his wife Mary have been ordered to repay more than $35,000 to the man.     

The Goshen couple admitted to embezzling the money from his bank account.
