Comedian Dane Cook’s half brother, Darryl McCauley plead guilty to embezzlement, three counts of forgery, 27 counts of larceny and other charges and was sentenced to 5-6 years in prison on Wednesday. The former corrections officer will also be on probation for 10 years upon his release. Additionally, he will have to pay restitution to Cook.
McCauley was Cook’s business manager from the early 1990s through 2008. Beginning in 2004, he began to steal millions from Cook. At one point, he even wrote a $3 million check to himself from Cook’s account.
McCauley and Cook share the same mother, Donna Cook, who died in 2006.
