A developer has been sentenced to six years in prison for extorting money from the Church of Scientology in exchange for bogus information about a $1.5 million check forgery.

U.S. District Judge John J. McNaught also imposed the maximum $10,000 fine on George T. Kattar and ordered him to pay back $33,333 to the church.

"I don't know why I ever got involved," the 68-year-old real estate developer told the court Wednesday as family members wept. "I can never repay my family for the embarrassment I caused them, and I am truly sorry."
