Brothers sentenced to prison in marathon fund scam

June 23, 2014

BOSTON (AP) — Two brothers have been sentenced to three years in prison for filing a false $2 million claim to the Boston Marathon victims' compensation fund using the name of a long-dead aunt.

Twenty-three-year-old Branden Mattier and 28-year-old Domunique Grice were convicted this month of conspiracy to commit larceny and attempt to commit larceny. Mattier also was convicted of identity fraud.

Suffolk Superior County Judge Jeffrey Locke also sentenced the men Monday to three years of probation, in which they will have to volunteer to help victims of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing.

Locke said their crime seemed "almost sociopathic" and that neither brother seemed to express remorse in court about the potential impact to bombing victims or One Fund donors.

The brothers' attorney said they would reserve the right to appeal.
