Ex-delegate sentenced to 4 years in prison for corruption
A former state delegate who pleaded guilty to federal charges for taking bribes has been sentenced to four years in prison.
The Washington Post reported that William Alberto Campos-Escobar, 43, was sentenced on conspiracy and bribery convictions on Wednesday.
Prosecutors said he accepted roughly $50,000 in bribes and kickbacks in exchange for official favors obtaining government money. He accepted personal payments between 2007 and 2014 from those who wanted access to $300,000 in county money, including grants to help nonprofits.
