NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - A former Waterbury police detective has been sentenced to five months in prison for obstructing a tax investigation.

Forty-two-year-old Robert Liquindoli pleaded guilty in November and was sentenced Thursday by a federal judge in New Haven.

Federal prosecutors say Liquindoli obtained fake documents to support deductions he claimed on his tax returns after he learned in 2011 that the Internal Revenue Service was investigating his accountant. They say he lied about having documents to back the claims.

Liquindoli was ordered to pay $4,490 in restitution. In addition to the prison time he faces five months of home confinement after his release, followed by seven months of supervised release.

The tax preparer, Thomas Thorndike, pleaded guilty to tax offenses in 2012 and was sentenced to six years in prison.
