    The Associated Press reports that the half brother and sister-in-law of comedian Dane Cook pay $12 million in restitution after they pleaded guilty to stealing from the comic. The pair embezzled millions from the comedian while his star was rising.

    Darryl and Erika McCauley were accused of embezzling millions from Cook while Darryl McCauley was working as Cook's business manager. Ouch. That's the worst kind of crime: to steal from your family.

    Darryl McCauley was sentenced in October to five to six years in prison on charges including 27 counts of larceny. His wife was sentenced to 2 1/2 to three years in prison on charges including two counts of larceny.

    Cook even mentions McCauley in some of his earliest material, in a positive light of course. That probably will change if Cook addresses the matter in future routines.

    Do you think the family of Dane Cook received fair punishment for their crimes against him?
