Raffaello Follieri, 30, pleaded guilty in September to fraudulently obtaining $2.4 million by misleading investors to believe he had Vatican connections that enabled him to buy the Roman Catholic Church's unwanted U.S. properties at discount.

Hathaway, who starred in "The Devil Wears Prada," broke her silence last month, telling W magazine she felt like "a rug was pulled out from under me" when Follieri was arrested in June.
