A Huntington investment adviser convicted of fraud was sentenced to 42 months in prison and ordered to pay $872,600 in restitution, federal prosecutors said Friday.

U.S. District Judge Arthur D. Spatt also required Daniel LaMarco, 51, to spend three years on post-release supervision.

LaMarco pleaded guilty to wire and commodities fraud in August.

The plea deal reached in the case required him to repay 13 victims in four states, according to Robert Capers, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District, which includes Long Island.

LaMarco’s scheme started in January 2011, when he sought investors for his commodity pool, which invested in the Foreign Exchange Market. To entice them, LaMarco made false claims about his track record and “touted the safety of his investment strategy,” Capers said in a statement.

He encouraged two of his victims to invest the proceeds from a home-equity loan, the prosecutor said.

LaMarco sent his investors monthly statements falsely claiming their holdings had more than doubled. Instead, by 2015, he had lost almost all of his clients’ money, Capers said.

LaMarco’s attorney, Robert Gottlieb of Manhattan, previously said his client had “accepted responsibility” for the fraud and was striving to pay back investors.
