BOSTON/April 20, 2017 (AP) (stlrealestate.news) — A Boston real estate broker has been sentenced to a year in jail for tampering with a jury verdict slip from his earlier larceny conviction.
David Scher was sentenced Tuesday in Suffolk Superior Court.
Suffolk District Attorney Daniel Conley’s office said the 34-year-old Scher pleaded guilty to several charges, including perjury, forgery and tampering with a court document.
Scher was convicted of larceny in 2014 for stealing a laptop from Suffolk University Law School, where he had been a student. Prosecutors said he later replaced the verdict slip in his case file with a forgery that said “not guilty.”
Scher was sentenced to 2½ years in jail, with one year to serve and the balance suspended for a two-year probationary period.
His lawyer did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
