Florida Man Sentenced To 2 Years For Embezzling More Than $1 Million From Art Gallery

From the Associated Press on 2/24/2015:

An Orlando-area art gallery employee has been sentenced to two years in prison for embezzling more than $1 million.

Jeffery Hall, of Maitland, was sentenced Monday to federal prison. Hall pleaded guilty to mail fraud in November.

Hall worked at an Orlando-area art gallery with locations in other parts of Florida. Prosecutors say he diverted proceeds from the sale of artwork to his personal bank accounts. They say he also used the gallery's artwork as collateral for loans.
