An East Haven lawyer will serve two years in jail in connection to a multimillion-dollar mortgage fraud ring that spread blight and neglect through New Haven neighborhoods.

Bradford J. Rieger, 56, who lives in Branford and practiced in East Haven, was sentenced Friday by U.S. District Judge Janet C. Hall in New Haven to 24 months in prison, according to Thomas Carson, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Rieger pleaded guilty in July to charges of conspiracy to commit mail fraud, wire fraud and bank fraud.

Along with ringleader Menachem Joseph “Yossi” Levitin, Rieger and co-conspirators defrauded banks of millions of dollars using phony mortgages. In addition to his prison sentence, Rieger will have to pay a $10,000 fine.
