The case is part of an investigation by the district attorney’s office into whether a number of professional football players and sports-related individuals have been the victims of multimillion-dollar frauds committed by their Long Island-based financial advisers, according to Clifford.

Attorneys for former Seattle linebacker Brian Bosworth have said they were questioned by Suffolk investigators about their client’s financial relationship with his financial advisers.

Rothman, who pleaded guilty to grand larceny, was sentenced by Judge C. Randall Hinrichs, Clifford said. The attorney for the defendant could not be reached for comment Friday.
