Ex-CEO gets prison for stealing from noted New York City charity; has repaid $3 million

The politically connected former CEO of a prominent New York City charity has been sentenced to prison for helping to steal more than $9 million from the anti-poverty organization.

William Rapfogel was sentenced Wednesday to a term of 40 months to 10 years. His wife and other supporters looked on as he was led out of court, uncuffed, to start serving his term.

He pleaded guilty in April to grand larceny, money laundering and other charges in a case that rattled city and state political circles.

He formerly led the Metropolitan Council on Jewish Poverty.

He has paid $3 million in restitution.
