Dane Cook may be having a big Christmas this year, but one thing is for sure, half brother Darryl McCauley and wife won’t be attending the celebration!
Darryl and Erika McCauley pleaded guilty in a Massachusetts courtroom to stealing money from the comedian’s accounts while Darryl was working as Cook’s manager for Great Dane Enterprises; the two were sentenced to prison for embezzling the money. They were also, along with the sentence, ordered by the Massachusetts Attorney General’s office to pay Cook $12 million in restitution, The Boston Globe reports.
However, the two claim to be broke, so where will the money come from? Attorney General Martha Coakley has one word for that “assets”. The duo spent most of the money buying a home in York Beach, Maine, a restaurant and get this – a hotel too!
Darryl McCauley was sentenced to five to six years in prison, while his wife was sentenced to two and half to three years.
Terrible that family sometimes just cannot be trusted – did they get what they deserved Fanbolters? And is there ever any way to gain Dane’s trust back once again – or should he just mark them off the Christmas List?
