A federal judge sentenced Papini to a longer prison term than prosecutors sought for her bogus story of being kidnapped at gunpoint while jogging.
Keith Papini said that he “learned the truth” following his wife's plea agreement and that she was still lying to their kids as recently as last month.
Papini has agreed to pay more than $300,000 in restitution to agencies that she’s accused of defrauding through her alleged kidnapping scheme.
A woman at the local sheriff's office said a hoax had not been "ruled out," but the sheriff later said they believe the abduction was real.
"It's the best Thanksgiving anyone could ask for," said Sherri Papini's sister.
Sherri Papini went jogging and disappeared. Her phone suggests she may have been abducted.
