Richardson in October was convicted of obstructing justice and making false statements in court. He went before a U.S. magistrate and unlawfully represented a person charged with illegally entering the U.S.
Another judge Monday sentenced Richardson to 65 months for obstruction, plus 60 months for the false statements. The sentences will run currently. He was fined $3,000 and must pay more than $25,000 in restitution to his duped clients.
The FBI determined Richardson falsely claimed to be licensed to practice law in Massachusetts and Oklahoma.
