A man who was convicted of organized crime, securities fraud, theft, and conspiracy has been sentenced to 24 years in prison plus close to $4 million in restitution, according to the Denver Post. The man, along with a partner, were accused of taking about $10 million that had been invested with them and using it to pay debts from a failed business from the past rather than investing it as they had said that they would. He is also accused of having run another scam while he was out on bond. The partner pleaded guilty, and is set to serve 8 years in prison.
