The final co-founder of a Webster company who was charged in a fraud case has been sentenced for his role in the scheme.

Jason Guck was sentenced to seven months in prison in the fraud case.

Guck, Jeb Tyler, and Craig Jerabeck, all co-founders of 5LINX, were arrested in the $2.3 million fraud scheme.

Prosecutors said the trio received more than $2.3 million from a Florida company that they didn’t report to 5LINX shareholders, violating a shareholder agreement.

Guck was also accused of filing a false tax return in 2012.

Tyler and Jerabeck were previously sentenced to serve 14 months in prison.

5LINX is a multi-level marketing company based in Webster.
