Former SandRidge landman sentenced to prison

A former SandRidge Energy landman was sentenced this week to 21 months in prison for committing fraud and accepting kickbacks.

Joel Matthew Eilerts, 40, of San Diego, pleaded guilty in October 2017 to conspiracy to commit wire fraud and honest services wire fraud, according to the U.S. attorney's office in Oklahoma City.

U.S. District Judge Robin J. Cauthron sentenced Eilerts on Thursday and ordered him to pay $493,707.59 in restitution to his former employer.

Eilerts worked in SandRidge's land department from 2009 to 2014. He rose to the positions of senior landman and land supervisor before being promoted to land manager, a position that made him the highest-ranking employee in the company's land department overseeing Oklahoma operations.
