New York, NY (WBEN) The soon-to-be father in law of Cameron Collins gets four years probation, the last of three defendants to be sentenced in an insider trading case that ended Chris Collins' career in Congress.

Stephen Zarsky was sentenced to the term by Judge Vernon Broderick Friday. Zarsky's lawyer told the court, "He's not a politician. He's a romantic poet. He has a guitar collection. And a medical condition that led hin through relapse to communicate in the wee hours of the morning."

Federal prosecutors say he's not young or controlled as Cameron Collins, but also not as rich.

Cameron Collins was sentenced to five years probation Thursday. His father Chris was sentenced January 17th to a 26 month prison term for alerting Cameron Collins about a failed drug test that sent Innate stock tumbling before the news became public, instructing the younger Collins and others to sell immediately.
