Former Suffolk County Legislator George Guldi was sentenced Monday to three to nine years in prison for grand larceny and one to three years for insurance fraud.

The sentences will be served consecutively, meaning Guldi's prison time will be between four and 12 years. He may also have to pay $863,000 in restitution, but a restitution hearing is still pending.
