Millman, now 75 and wracked by years of legal and financial troubles, was sentenced yesterday to two years in prison and ordered to pay $750,000 in fines and restitution for masterminding an extensive coupon-clipping fraud that brought him and his family millions. Millman, charged in 1998, pleaded guilty in December to one count of mail fraud.
