WICHITA, Kan. - Dick Boushka has led a blessed life.
The Wichita businessman and former Olympic athlete said so this week as a federal judge sentenced him to 70 months in prison for white-collar crimes involving millions of dollars.
A man people looked up to as a role model and successful developer, Boushka learned his fate from U.S. Senior Judge Wesley Brown.
The 69-year-old apologized for his business dealings.
Brown sentenced Boushka to 70 months each, with no parole, on two counts of bank fraud and one count of making a false statement to obtain a loan and to 60 months for one count of omission of material information in the sale of a security. The prison time is to be followed by five years of supervised release.
