Radio Host Ballentine Receives Probation
Jul 7th 2015, 21:59
Former syndicated radio host and attorney Warren Ballentine was convicted of six counts of fraud in October 2014. At his sentencing hearing on Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Matthew Kennelly felt Ballentine was "a relatively minimal participant" in only three of the counts. Because of that, Ballentine was sentenced to three years of probation, 300 hours of community service, and restitution of $140,940. That is far less than then the maximum he could have received: 30 years in prison, plus a fine of up to $6 million.
