BOSTON (AP) - A Boston real estate broker has been sentenced to a year in jail for tampering with a jury verdict slip from his earlier larceny conviction.

David Scher was sentenced Tuesday in Suffolk Superior Court.

Suffolk District Attorney Daniel Conley’s office said the 34-year-old Scher pleaded guilty to several charges, including perjury, forgery and tampering with a court document.

Scher was convicted of larceny in 2014 for stealing a laptop from Suffolk University Law School, where he had been a student. Prosecutors said he later replaced the verdict slip in his case file with a forgery that said “not guilty.”

Scher was sentenced to 2½ years in jail, with one year to serve and the balance suspended for a two-year probationary period.

His lawyer did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
