    A judge has ordered 24 years in prison for a Dallas-area man who pleaded guilty over a $3 million Ponzi scheme.

    Thomas Lester Irby II of Frisco last week pleaded guilty to money laundering, theft and securities fraud.

    The 41-year-old ex-financier was sentenced Monday. Irby could have received life in prison.

    Irby owned Plano-based Titan Wealth Management.
