    So where will the money come from?

    Well, Attorney General Martha Coakley said that they'll go after the couple's assets first.

    The duo bought a home in York Beach, Maine, and also reportedly invested in a restaurant and hotel there.

    In October, Darryl and Erika McCauley pleaded guilty to stealing money from the comedian's accounts while Darryl was working as Cook's manager.

    Darryl was sentenced to five to six years in prison, while his wife was sentenced to two and half to three years.
