A judge sentenced the architect of an illegal, all-cash “shadow campaign” Monday to three months in prison for violating campaign finance laws in the 2010 mayoral election of Vincent Gray.
Jeffrey Thompson, who alleges Gray knew about the illegal cash campaign, pleaded guilty to the campaign corruption in 2014 and cooperated with investigators. U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly delivered the unexpected sentence, which exceeded the requests of prosecutors who asked only for six months of home confinement, reports WJLA.
Thompson will spend three months in jail, after which he is sentenced to three months home confinement and three years of probation.
