LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The US Department of Justice is ordering a former Louisville DJ who scammed people out of thousands of dollars to pay it back.

A letter was sent to people who donated money to the Todd Kelly Foundation.Todd Kelly Smith is in prison for conning people out of $70,000 after lying about having Lou Gehrig's disease.

The letter from the Department of Justice says although the court has ordered restitution in the case, it doesn't mean Smith will actually make the payments.

In 2008, Smith was sentenced to seven years in prison.
