HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) - The former chief financial officer of a burglar alarm firm is returning to prison for failing to repay nearly $1 million he embezzled.

The Herald-Mail reports (https://bit.ly/1yy3CO ) that 55-year-old Curtis Pietro (pee-AY’-troh) was sentenced Wednesday in Hagerstown to 20 years. He previously served about two years after pleading guilty in 2010.

Pietro still owes about $784,000 to locally based Glessner Technologies. He repaid $80,000 in 2010 and says he’s been making payments of $100 a month.



Pietro told the court he has other financial obligations, including child support and alimony.

Prosecutors say Pietro used the stolen funds for luxuries including trips to Paris and the Caribbean, a new house and jewelry.
