Woodberry was sentenced on Tuesday by Judge Robert Gettleman of the US District Court for the Northern District of Illinois in Chicago.

Ponle was sentenced after being convicted on one count of fraud. Seven other counts were dismissed following a plea bargain in April.

According to Gettleman’s ruling, Ponle was to submit himself to the US Marshal Service for onward transfer to the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut, where his family members, especially his American fiancée, would be allowed to visit him.
