Former Personal Assistant Sentenced for Stealing from Dave Matthews Band Member

Jan. 17, 2014

The former personal assistant of Dave Matthews Band violinist Boyd Tinsley is headed to a federal prison.

Getty Rothenberg entered a guilty plea for wire fraud in July of 2013.

Prosecutors say Rothenberg stole as much as $7 million from Tinsley over the course of three years.

On Friday, a federal judge sentenced Rothenberg to nine months in prison and nine months home confinement.

He must also pay $1,250,000 in restitution.
