An Overbrook man will spend 18 months in prison for stealing money from people trying to buy tickets on Craigslist, a federal judge ruled Wednesday.

Daniel J. Isabella Jr., 30, pleaded guilty in February to four counts of wire fraud. His brother, David Isabella, 23, of Overbrook pleaded guilty in March to three counts of wire fraud and is awaiting sentencing.

Daniel Isabella during nine months in 2012 defrauded 194 people out of $53,426.79 by agreeing to sell them tickets he didn't have, prosecutors say.

U.S. District Judge Nora Barry Fischer also sentenced Isabella to three years of probation and ordered him to pay restitution to the victims.
