A former Rhode Island State Representative was sentenced Thursday after being found guilty of misappropriating more than $28,000 from a friend.

Leo Medina was sentenced to 20 years with three to serve and the remainder suspended with probation.

Upon release from the ACI, Medina will pay full restitution in the amount of $500 per month. 

Prosecutors say the $28,000 was part of a life insurance policy for the victim's deceased daughter.
