NEW YORK — A noted singer of Jewish music is headed for prison after being convicted of stealing $36,000 from a New York City woman who says the money was meant to buy Torah scrolls.

Michoel Streicher was sentenced Tuesday to one to three years in prison. He apologized and said his conduct was "not intended."

He also gave the woman's family a $36,000 check.

The Orthodox cantor has released several albums. Most came out in the 1990s. He is also known as Michael Streicher.
