A Pataskala man accused of stealing nearly $2 million  from the Longaberger Company and its CEO has been sentenced.

53-year-old Douglas Thompson appeared in Muskingum County Common Pleas Court Monday where he received a 6 year prison sentence on one count of aggravated theft.

The charge stems from an investigation where it was discovered that Thompson was involved in an extensive and complex fraud case while working for Tami Longaberger and her home estate.

Investigators say Thompson stole the money over a period of six years.

Along with the prison sentence, Judge Mark Fleegle ordered that Thompson pay restitution in the amount of $1,980,457.68.
