Disbarred lawyer sentenced for stealing more than $300K from people including his wife's nurse

A disbarred Massachusetts lawyer who stole $60,000 from his wife's nurse and used some of the cash to buy Boston Red Sox season tickets was sentenced to federal prison for defrauding a group of people out of money.

John Silvia Jr., 68, of Somerset was sentenced to serve 57 months by a federal judge in Boston Friday. He will be on supervised release for two years and was ordered to pay more than $300,000 in restitution.

Silvia was convicted on 17 counts of mail, wire and securities fraud during trials in 2016 and 2017. He was also convicted on witness tampering and structuring cash transactions charges.

Authorities said Silvia sold ownership interests in Advanced Space Monitor (ASM), when, in reality, he did not have the right to do so.
