A Connecticut art dealer has pleaded guilty to a federal charge stemming from the fraudulent sale of an imitation Marc Chagall lithograph. The US attorney’s office said David J. Crespo, 59, of Guilford, pleaded guilty Tuesday to one count of mail fraud.

They said one sale was to an undercover FBI agent.
