BOSTON, Oct. 13 (UPI) -- U.S. comedian Dane Cook's half-brother and former manager was sentenced Wednesday to five to six years in prison for embezzlement, court records show.

Darryl McCauley pleaded guilty in a Massachusetts court to 27 counts of larceny of more than $250, three counts of forgery, and single counts of embezzlement, uttering and conspiracy, E! News said.

"For several years, Mr. McCauley abused his position as a family member to gain Mr. Cook's trust, and stole millions of dollars for his own personal gain," state Attorney General Martha Coakley said in a statement. "We hope that today's sentence will act as a deterrent, and our office will continue to investigate and prosecute these cases."
