Hsu received a sentence of 20 years for the fraud he plead guilty to in May, and four years and four months on the campaign finance charges he was convicted of the same month.

Before he was sentenced, the AP reports, Hsu apologized in court.

TPMmuckraker's full coverage of the case is here.

Late Update: The Wall Street Journal comes through with a fuller account of the scene in court. Hsu said: "I know apologizing will not make things better for anyone, but I would still like to apologize to your Honor, and to everyone else."
