Long Time Comin’

Duke Cunningham briber Tommy Kontogiannis sentence to 8 years and one month.

From the San Diego Union-Tribune

The contrition, tears and poor health of Thomas Kontogiannis were not enough to spare him a prison sentence of eight years and one month for his role laundering bribe money for former Rep. Randy “Duke” Cunningham.

On Friday, U.S. District Judge Larry Burns also fined the wealthy Long Island financier $1,050,000 – twice the value of the bribe that Kontogiannis laundered through fraudulent mortgages that allowed Cunningham to buy a $2.4 million mansion in Rancho Santa Fe.
