Notable sentencings of public officials

The papers this morning provide interesting reports of notable federal sentencings of public officials:

  • From California, this story details that a former mayor was "to more than 15 years in federal prison for corruption in a scheme to steer no-bid city contracts worth hundreds of thousands of dollars to a consulting firm he secretly owned."  White Collar Crime Prof Blog has more here.

  • From Illinois, this story details the sentencing of a former police officer in which his "exemplary record prior to his conviction for obstruction and perjury" resulted in a below-guidelines sentence of "33 months in prison."
