A federal judge on Thursday sentenced a Lawrence developer to serve three months in prison for illegal disposal of asbestos during a construction project. 

Thomas S. Fritzel was also ordered to pay a $55,000 fine for violations of the Clean Air Act during remodeling work at the former Alvamar Country Club, now known as the Jayhawk Club. 
The penalty imposed by U.S. District Judge Holly Teeter comes after jurors found Fritzel guilty of three counts related to disposal of the asbestos, a hazardous material linked cancer.
