Former Seattle VC sentenced to federal prison

A followup to an unpleasant tech story: Craig McCollum, the former Seattle venture capitalist found guilty of failing to pay child support and alimony, was sentenced Monday by a federal judge in St. Louis.

From a story in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch today:

U.S. District Judge Carol E. Jackson gave him three months in prison and ordered him to pay more than $10,000 in restitution to his children and others.

Jackson said victim impact statements from McCallum’s children had been “heartbreaking.”

“This isn’t a case where you had trouble finding a job,” she told McCallum. “This was a crime that you committed.”
