POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. — A former Vassar College worker and his wife accused of embezzling more than $2.5 million from the New York school are headed behind bars.

Arthur Fisher and wife Jennifer were arrested in April after investigators determined money had been embezzled from Vassar, where Fisher worked as a construction project manager from 2005 through 2010. He later confessed.

A Westchester County judge on Wednesday sentenced Arthur Fisher to five years in prison on weapons charges stemming from illegal guns seized from his home. The sentences will run concurrently.
