Feds Seek Prison Time for Virginia’s Ex-First Lady

Prosecutors today urged a federal judge to sentence former Virginia first lady Maureen McDonnell to 18 months in Federal prison for her role in the corruption scandal resulting in the conviction of her husband, former governor Robert McDonnell.

The U.S. Probation Officer, based on Federal sentencing guidelines, recommended she receive between 5 and 6½ years in prison.  Prosecutors endorsed a much lower sentence of 18 months, in light of the fact that the judge had sentenced her husband to only two years in prison.

Sentencing is scheduled for February 20.
