Ex-Rikers official gets 1-3 years for role in theft of Dali painting
A former Rikers assistant deputy warden was sentenced to 1-3 years Monday in Dali theft.
Mitchell Hochhauser pleaded guilty in September to one count of attempted grand larceny for his role in switching a Salvadore Dali sketch at the jail with a fake one during a phony fire drill. The sketch went missing on March 1.
Three other Riker's employees are awaiting trial for their alleged roles in the crime.
The sketch, which is still missing, has been appraised for $250,000.
