The Massachusetts attorney general’s office has ordered comedian Dane Cook’s half brother and sister-in-law to pay $12 million in restitution after they pleaded guilty to stealing from him.
Darryl and Erika McCauley of Wilmington were accused of embezzling millions from Cook while Darryl McCauley was working as Cook’s business manager.
Darryl McCauley was sentenced in October to five to six years in prison on charges including 27 counts of larceny. His wife was sentenced to 2½ to three years in prison on charges including two counts of larceny.
A spokesman for Attorney General Martha Coakley told the Portsmouth Herald that the next step is for the court to tally the couple’s assets. The couple bought a home in York Beach, Maine, and also invested in a hotel and restaurant there.
