The sentencing hearing for a former Monroeville man convicted of bilking millions of dollars from a retired Allegheny County judge and other investors in bogus real estate deals is scheduled to continue Monday.

Federal prosecutors are seeking more than 27 years in prison for Alfredo Sararo III of Naples, Fla. A Florida federal jury convicted Sararo in August on nine charges of fraud and wire fraud.

A sentencing hearing that began Thursday did not conclude Friday.

Prosecutors said Sararo, a former Allegheny County probation officer and tennis instructor, underreported his income in tax returns, lied to investors and falsified documents.

The government says Sararo bilked retired Common Pleas Judge Robert P. Horgos of Sewickley Hills out of more than $1 million, according to court documents.
