October 02, 2009|Richard Winton

A Pomona-area water board member convicted of misappropriating public funds was sentenced Thursday to five years in state prison.

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Mike Camacho also ordered Three Valleys Municipal Water District board member Xavier Alvarez, 51, to pay $4,150.79 in restitution.

Alvarez failed to disclose that he had been divorced for five years when he unlawfully applied for and received health insurance benefits for his ex-wife. He already was on probation for falsely claiming to be a Medal of Honor recipient.
