Cook's Half-brother Sentenced To Jail Over Larceny Charges

Comedian DANE COOK's half-brother has been sent to prison for embezzling millions of dollars from the funnyman.
Darryl MCCauley, who worked as the funnyman's business manager for almost five years, was arrested in Massachusetts in December 2008, accused of stealing from Cook by forging a $3 million (£2 million) cheque to himself.
On Wednesday (13Oct10) he pleaded guilty to 27 counts of larceny, three counts of forgery, and single counts of embezzlement, uttering and conspiracy in a Massachusetts court room. He was sentenced to between five and six years in prison.
Attorney General Martha Coakley says in a statement, "For several years, Mr. MCCauley abused his position as a family member to gain Mr. Cook's trust, and stole millions of dollars for his own personal gain. We hope that today's sentence will act as a deterrent, and our office will continue to investigate and prosecute these cases."
MCCauley will also serve 10 years' probation once he's released from jail, reports E! Online.
Meanwhile Cook's sister-in-law, who is married to MCCauley, has been charged with larceny by scheme and receiving/concealing stolen property for allegedly aiding and abetting her husband. She is due in court on 26 October (10).
