Manhattan lawyer William F. Duker was sentenced in federal court last week to nearly three years in prison for defrauding the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. and the Resolution Trust Corp.

Mr. Duker, former managing partner of the law firm Duker & Barrett, pleaded guilty in August to overbilling the FDIC and RTC of $1.4 million while performing legal work during the savings and loan crisis. He was sentenced Dec. 10 to 33 months in prison starting Feb. 2 and was fined $7,500, according to the FDIC inspector general.
