A Menlo Park man described by police as a veteran scam artist has been sentenced to more than two years in prison, for selling fake Apple stock.

Roger Miller, 67, entered a no contest plea yesterday to grand theft and check fraud.

Miller was charged in May with convincing two Menlo Park residents to buy 404 shares of Apple stock that he never had.

In 2002, he was convicted of trying to sell a stake in the Golden State Warriors that he didn't own.
