Today’s Daily Gazette is reporting that the former NYS Archivist who stole artifacts from the archives and put them up for sale online in 2007 will spend 2-6 years in prison. The article also states” In addition to prison time, he must pay $125,500 in restitution, to be divided among people who unknowingly bought stolen property from him and later returned it to the state.”
