Former WFAN radio host Craig Carton was sentenced to prison Friday on federal fraud charges.
Prosecutors had asked for five to seven years.
Carton was convicted last November for his role in defrauding investors in a ticket reselling business. Prosecutors said Carton used the money on personal expenses, including gambling, and misappropriated at least $5.6 million. Carton's co-conspirators Michael Wright and Joseph Meli were sentenced to nearly two years and 6 1/2 years in prison, respectively.
