Ex-Texas Rep. Steve Stockman gets 10 years for conspiracy
Disgraced former Texas Rep. Steve Stockman will serve 10 years in federal prison for conspiring to bilk at least $775,000 from conservative foundations that intended the donations for charities and voter education.
The former Republican congressman was also ordered to pay $1 million in restitution during his sentencing hearing Wednesday in Houston.
Stockman, 61, was convicted in April of mail and wire fraud, conspiracy and money laundering.
