RICHMOND, Va. ( – A Richmond finance manager and former restaurateur was sentenced in federal court Friday to 18 months for defrauding his rock star client and was ordered to pay $1.25 million in restitution to the victim.

Getty Andrew Rothenberg, who for more than a decade handled the personal finances of Dave Matthews Band member and Charlottesville resident Boyd Tinsley, will serve nine months of his sentence in federal prison and nine months in home confinement. Three years of supervised release will follow.

Rothenberg was allowed to remain free and is scheduled to self-report to federal authorities March 1 to begin his incarceration. His attorney requested that he serve his time at a facility in Petersburg to be close to his wife and two children, one of whom was born last week.
