NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Federal prosecutors say a Hendersonville attorney has been sentenced to more than 2 ½ years in prison for his role in a real estate closing scheme.

Officials with the office of U.S. Attorney David Rivera said that 42-year-old Garry Christopher Forsythe was sentenced to 33 months in a federal prison followed by two years of supervised released. In addition to the prison sentence, U.S. District Court Judge Aleta Trauger ordered Forsythe to pay $2.2 million in restitution and to forfeit the proceeds of the crime.

Officials say Forsythe pleaded guilty in December to one count of wire fraud in connection with a scheme involving escrow funds held by his real estate company, Forsythe Title and Escrow.
