ROCHESTER, N.Y.--U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul, Jr. announced today that Gerald Fretto, 51, of Ontario, NY, who was convicted of filing a false income tax return, was sentenced to three years probation and 100 hours of community service by Chief U.S. District Judge Frank P. Geraci.

Kitchen, Special Agent in Charge, New York Field Office, and the  U.S. Postal Inspection Service, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge Shelly Binkowski.
