Testimony ended on Tuesday in the federal criminal restitution hearing case of David Dodd, the developer of the Capitol View Commerce Center project in Harrisburg that fizzled nearly five years ago.

Senior Judge Sylvia Rambo of the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania in Harrisburg will determine how much restitution Dodd must pay and who will receive it. 

Rambo will also sentence Dodd on his guilty pleas to felony counts of money laundering and misappropriation of federal funds tied to Capitol View, an unfinished project at Cameron and Herr streets, about a mile from the state capitol.

Dodd, 44, of Hampden Township, Pa., pleaded guilty late in 2011. Rambo could sentence him late this year or early next.

According to the Patriot-News in Harrisburg, Dodd could serve up to 30 years in prison. 

Dodd already has forfeited more than $1 million in assets that federal authorities have seized, the newspaper reported.

Dauphin County is paying a $300,000-a-year penalty for defaulted federal loans. According to the Patriot-News, Dodd was promised more than $17 million in federal, state and county and city financing for his $28 million project, and had spent about $8 million of it before unpaid contractors walked off in spring 2008.
