The boyfriend of former Mouseketeer Darlene Gillespie was sentenced in Los Angeles on Monday to 18 months in prison for securities fraud. Jerry Fraschilla pleaded guilty to buying stock in 1992 and 1993 that he had no intention of paying for. U.S. District Judge Lourdes Baird also ordered Fraschilla, 61, to pay $65,000 in restitution. Gillespie, an original cast member of the “Mickey Mouse Club” TV series in the ’50s, was indicted a year ago on related charges. Her trial will begin Nov. 30.
