Civil rights lawyer Stephen Yagman was sentenced on Tuesday to three years in federal prison after being convicted earlier this year on bankruptcy fraud and tax evasion.

U.S. District Judge Stephen V. Wilson ordered Yagman, 63, a partner at Venice Beach, Calif.-based Yagman, Yagman & Reichmann, to begin serving his sentence on Jan. 15. He also sentenced Yagman to two years of supervised release after his prison term and ordered him to pay the government the costs of his prosecution.
