LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The former executive director of the Department of Family and Geriatric Medicine at the University of Louisville has been sentenced to more than five years in prison and ordered to pay $2.8 million in restitution.

Acting U.S. Attorney John E. Kuhn Jr. in Louisville said in a news release that 37-year-old Perry Chadwick Vaughn of Sellersburg, Indiana, diverted contractual checks and patient payments for his personal use.

He was sentenced Tuesday to 63 months.

Vaughn pleaded guilty in December to theft and other charges in federal court. He was fired in September.

The Courier-Journal reported that the government alleged Vaughn used the money to buy or lease nine luxury vehicles and pay for real estate, luxury vacations and a $9,000 necklace.
