Former Greenwich, Conn., attorney Roland R. Hicks was sentenced last week to 37 months in prison for embezzling over $1.2 million from clients and defrauding investors in a business called “LawWeb.”

The sentence imposed by U.S. District Court Judge Ellen Bree Burns on a single count of mail fraud was the top of the range of imprisonment stipulated by the parties when Hicks pled guilty on June 21.
