Dane Cook’s Half Brother Guilty of Embezzlement…From Dane Cook

Comedian and comedian’s punchline Dane Cook is the subject of a bitter sweet story from KTLA:

Dane Cook’s half brother and sister-and-law have been ordered to pay the comic $12 million in restitution, after they pleaded guilty to stealing money from him.

Darryl and Erika McCauley are accused of embezzling millions from Cook while Darryl McCauley was working as his business manager.

Darryl McCauley was convicted of charges including 27 counts of larceny and sentenced to 5 to 6 years in prison. His wife was found guilty of two counts of larceny and sentenced to 2 1/2 to 3 years in prison.

Sweet: his brother was convicted of the wrongdoing. Bitter: Cook had $12 million to steal?!

The upshot is the comic is in the news again. So that’s good, huh?
