BOSTON -- George Kattar, convicted last December of trying to extort $100,000 from the Church of Scientology, was sentenced Wednesday to six years in prison and fined $10,000, court officials said.

Kattar, 57, of Methuen, also was ordered by U.S. District Judge John McNaught to make restitution of $33,333 to the group.

He successfully collected $30,000 of a promised $100,000 reward from the church for giving them information that turned out to be false about an attempt to pass a forged $1.5 million check.
