A Houston man who used his Covid-19 relief funds to buy a Lamborghini has been sentenced to nine in prison.
The man didn’t just use his aid for the luxury sports car-he also put it towards a Rolex watch and several visits to strip clubs.
The man, Lee Price, pleaded guilty to wire fraud and money laundering in September.
Price used more than $1.6 million in funding from the Paycheck Protection Program to make his purchases.

Price’s lawyer said in a statement, “Mr. Price hopes that others will learn from his reckoning that there is no easy money.”
