A Newington, Conn., man who profited from his ex-wife’s embezzling and did not report the money as income was sentenced to one year in prison.

Douglas R. Budnick, 41, pleaded guilty to filing a false income tax return for the year 1999. That year, he and his wife claimed a combined income of $59,475 when it was, in fact, more than $2 million.

Denise Budnick had embezzled the money from her former employer, the Connecticut Attorney’s Title Insurance Company, and has since pleaded guilty to fraud and tax charges.
