43-year-old Jacob Arabov copped a plea last October to doctoring records and lying to the Feds. Prosecutors had asked that he get three years, but a judge, citing Jacob's work with charities, gave him a break. He was also ordered to pay a $50,000 fine and pay a $2 million forfeiture payment to the government.
