Roman Fitzmartin, 36, of Doylestown, was sentenced today in U.S. District Court to 36 months in prison for mail fraud in connection with a real estate investment scheme.

Court documents show that Fitzmartin, operator of the Doylestown Investment Group, sold real estate interests to investors for properties he did not own, as well as one he did own, and kept the proceeds of more than $872,000.

He pleaded guilty March 1 to the two counts of mail fraud.

U.S. District Court Judge Harvey Bartle 3d ordered Fitzmartin to pay $755,000 in restitution to the investors.    - Alan J. Heavens
