BUFFALO, N.Y. — Gerard J. Whittington, the longtime treasurer of the Aurora-Colden Fire District, began serving a one- to three-year prison term Monday for the nearly $370,000 authorities say he embezzled over the past eight years to finance his vehicle repair business.

State Supreme Court Justice Russell P. Buscaglia rejected what he said were numerous letters he received on Whittington's behalf seeking leniency.
