Dane Cook's half-brother has pleaded guilty to stealing millions from the popular comedian and has been sentenced to five to six years in prison, the attorney general's office said today.
Darryl McCauley of Wilmington also faces 10 years of probation after his release, the attorney general's office said.
McCauley was convicted of 27 counts of larceny over $250, three counts of forgery, and single counts of embezzlement, uttering, and conspiracy, said attorney general's spokesman Harry Pierre.
McCauley, who worked as Cook's business manager from the early 1990s to December 2008, was accused of writing company checks to himself and transferring funds into his personal bank account, while he was manager.
Prosecutors have said McCauley stole millions from Cook.
