A Vermont man was sentenced Wednesday to nearly five years in prison for his role in a movie project that defrauded investors of $9 million.
A judge sentenced Malcom ‘‘Mac’’ Parker to 55 months, nearly two years more than the maximum term agreed to in a plea deal.
Parker and Louis Soteriou of Middlebury, Conn., had both pleaded guilty to federal charges stemming from a movie project called ‘‘Birth of Innocence.’’ The fraud resulted in losses for hundreds of investors, mostly from Vermont, and a movie was never released.
