Mac Parker appeals prison sentence

BURLINGTON (AP) — A Vermont man convicted for his role in a movie fraud case is appealing his 55-month prison sentence.
When 57-year-old Malcolm “Mac” Parker of Addison was sentenced last month, the judge rejected a government recommendation to give him a three-year sentence.
During the Aug. 21 sentencing hearing, U.S. District Court Judge Christina Reiss told Parker she was adding 19 months to his prison time because she felt he was as culpable as his partner, who had been given a seven-year sentence in the same court two days earlier. Prosecutors say the two defrauded investors of at least $9 million.
The Burlington Free Press reports there was no indication in court papers filed Wednesday if the appeal would delay Parker’s sentence, scheduled to begin Oct. 1.
