The Associated Press reports that Dusty Foggo, the former CIA number 3 who pleaded guilty to steering contracts to his friend the defense contractor Brent Wilkes, has been sentenced to 37 months in prison — just what prosecutors were recommending.
Foggo received tens of thousands of dollars worth of lavish gifts and vacations, in exchange for helping Wilkes get no-bid contracts, according to prosecutors.
Wilkes has pleaded guilty to bribing then-GOP congressman Duke Cunningham.
Yesterday, we reported on a treasure trove of court documents released in the case, which shed light on Foggo’s scheme.
