A former investment firm executive convicted of defrauding senior citizens in Texas and Florida has been sentenced to 25 years in federal prison.

A judge in Dallas on Monday sentenced 40-year-old Jeffrey Charles Bruteyn.

A jury in April 2010 convicted Bruteyn on nine counts of securities fraud related to a more than $50 million scam. Prosecutors say many of the victims were retirees and their investment money went for Bruteyn's personal use.

Bruteyn is a former managing director of Dallas-based AmeriFirst Funding Corp. and AmeriFirst Acceptance Corp., both now defunct.
