A father who tried to get his daughter diagnosed with a genetic disorder has been sentenced to a year in prison.

Andrologo Napoli, 26, of Washington, D.C., pleaded guilty Monday to conspiracy to defraud the state of nearly $1 million.

She was charged in March after she tried to hire a geneticist to conduct a genetic test on her daughter and her husband, who is also a physician.

She told the judge that she had a genetic condition that she did not have an answer to and had been trying to find someone to help her with it.

A federal jury in Alexandria, Va., found Napoli guilty of three counts of mail fraud, two counts of identity theft, and one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud.

She was sentenced to four years in prison on one count and five years on the other.

Napoli also agreed to forfeit her passport and was required to pay restitution to her son and daughter.
