Prosecutors say Jerabeck and co-defendants Jeb Tyler and Jason Guck, who also helped start 5LINX, received more than $2.3 million from a Florida company that they didn't report to 5LINX shareholders, violating a shareholder agreement.

Prosecutor also say Jerabeck also provided false information on his personal tax returns in 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2015. 

In addition to serving 14 months in prison, Jerabeck will have to pay $2,310,510 in restitution to victims and $118,628 to the IRS. 

Tyler and Guck were previously convicted and are scheduled to sentenced on Dec. 12 and Dec. 19, respectively.
