Court records show Lee County prosecutors are asking that a one-year state court sentence for Kyle Sandler run concurrently with a more-than -five-year federal prison sentence he's already serving. That means he wouldn't have to do added time.
The 43-year-old Sandler is due back in court next Tuesday in Opelika to plead guilty to a related state theft charge.
Sandler founded a business called The Round House in 2014 and sucked in dozens of investors. He promoted some new businesses but also admitted wrongly taking investors' money.
Sandler portrayed himself as a wealthy former Google executive to snag investors.
