A former Lebanon certified public account was sentenced in federal court Thursday for engaging in a 12-million-dollar scheme to defraud dozens of victims across the United States. 47-Year-Old Douglas Richardson was sentenced to 15 years and 8 months in federal prison without parole. Judge Douglas Harpool says Richardson is also ordered to pay 8-million-833-thousand-dollars in restitution to his victims. In November 2019 Richardson was found guilty at trial of all 10 counts of a federal indictment that included six counts of wire fraud and four counts of money laundering. Richardson used the funds from his company, Smart Prong Technologies in Tulsa, Oklahoma to support his lavish lifestyle.
