Former Mason mayor and state lawmaker Pete Beck was sentenced to four years in prison Thursday.  
 
He was convicted earlier this summer of using his stature as a CPA and lawmaker to lure investors to a failing technology company.
 
Beck was found guilty in June on 13 criminal charges related to perjury, theft and fraudulent sale of security.  

He was found not guilty on another 25 charges following a 10-week securities breach bench trial.

FOX19 NOW will continue to update this story on air and online.
