A Houston man who scammed $1.6 million in COVID relief funds and blew it on a Lamborghini and strippers was sentenced to nine years in prison on Monday.

Lee Price III, 30, had spent the money from the relief fund on luxury items such as a Lamborghini, a Ford F-350 pickup truck, a Rolex watch and even at a strip club. 

Price had pleaded guilty to charges of wire fraud and money laundering in September after he applied for loans with the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).

Federal authorities have since seized $700,000 worth of Price's money and expensive goods.

'Mr. Price hopes that others will learn from his reckoning that there is no easy money,' Price's attorney Tom Berg said in an email to the Washington Post. 

'He has the balance of the 110-month sentence to reflect, repent and rebuild his misspent life.'
