(Newser) – Anne Hathaway's ex-boyfriend will spend the next 54 months in jail for his conman ways, TMZ reports. Fund manager Raffaello Follieri, 30, was sentenced today on 14 counts of wire fraud, conspiracy, and money laundering. He bilked investors out of millions by leading them to believe he represtented the Vatican and had an inside track on church properties.

"I have dishonored my family name and embarrassed the church I love,'' Follieri said at his sentencing. "I will never be able to wash away that stain.''
