The executive director of a Fairfax County-based national association of opticians was sentenced Friday to a year in prison for his part in a scheme which authorities said stole about $1.7 million from the association. Hugh Michael Robey, 48, of Bowie, had been the executive director of the American Board of Opticianry and the National Contact Lens Examiners, a nonprofit group on Loisdale Road in the Springfield area.
