A court has upheld one couple's wire fraud conviction after they did not report a sinkhole at their home.

The pair collected over $150,000 in insurance money when a sinkhole opened up at their Spring Hill home. 

Prosecutors say they kept the sinkhole "a secret" from buyers.

A family with five kids later moved in and had to evacuate when the sinkhole opened up again.
