He was also ordered to pay millions of dollars in restitution.

Conn pleaded guilty last year to a $550 million social security scheme.

The plea agreement came with a 12-year-sentence but before he was formally sentenced, Conn fled to Central America.

He was caught after six months on the run at a Pizza Hut in Honduras.
