Date: 25th January 2002
The former accountant of LEONARDO DiCAPRIO, Matt DAMON and CAMERON DIAZ has been sentenced to nearly five years in prison after being found guilty of fraud. Dana Giachetto received the maximum sentence for fraud charges, 57 months behind bars, in a New York court earlier this week and has been ordered to pay $9. 9 million (£7. 07 million) to his victims.
In the federal court hearing, Giachetto broke down, crying, "I would like to note to all my clients and the people who suffered from my actions that I am truly sorry. " With credits for time already served, Giachetto is expected to remain in prison until 2005.
