October 03, 2008|From the Associated Press

An archivist convicted of selling stolen New York artifacts such as an original Currier & Ives lithograph on EBay was sentenced in Albany on Thursday to two to six years in prison. He also paid $129,500 in restitution and handed over his personal collection to the state.

Daniel Lorello, the 55-year-old former archives and records management specialist for the state Department of Education, pleaded guilty to second-degree grand larceny in August. Some 1,600 items have been recovered, and the restitution will be used in part to repay people who bought and gave back some of them, said John Milgrim, spokesman for the state attorney general.
