Concepcion Sentenced

My friend Jo Laird, who represents one of the victims, emails that dealer Giuseppe Concepcion was sentenced yesterday to 51 months in federal prison for selling fake art:  "Judge McMahon made clear that she intended the sentence to be severe both because she found Concepcion's actions to be 'despicable' and because she wanted to send a signal about this type of crime, which she described as a reprehensible betrayal of trust."
