Dane Cook‘s half brother, Darryl McCauley, has been sentenced to five to six years in prison after embezzling millions of dollars from the comedian. McCauley acted as Cook’s business manager from the ’90s through December 2008, but began siphoning money into his personal accounts in 2004. Once, the guy wrote himself a $3 million check from Cook’s account. Who is that dumb? No one’s going to think they misplaced $3 million! And this guy used to be a corrections officer, so it’s not like he didn’t know what he was in for. McCauley also has to make restitution for the loot he stole. So nanny-nanny-boo-boo, Darryl.
