图森,亚利桑那州(路透社)——在周一,一名法官宣布了对亚利桑那州边境小镇的前镇长的判决,因贿赂被判处三年半的有期徒刑之后会因其欺诈罪继续执行七年缓刑。
TUCSON, Ariz (Reuters) - A judge sentenced the former mayor of the small Arizona border town of Nogales on Monday to 3.5 years in prison for bribery and seven years of probation for fraud.
奥克塔维奥·加西亚·冯·博斯特尔,今年31岁,在一个简短的听证会后从匹马高级法院上被上拷带走,他的律师,克里斯托弗·斯莱皮在此期间一直坚持贿赂指控可以执行两年的最短刑期。
Octavio Garcia Von Borstel, 31, was led away in handcuffs from Pima County Superior Court after a brief hearing during which his attorney, Christopher Scileppi, asked for the minimum sentence of two years in jail for the bribery charge.
冯·博斯特尔并未承认贿赂罪行,也未对诈骗感到自责。
Von Borstel had pleaded no contest to bribery and guilty to fraud.
美国联邦调查局(FBI)在经过五个月的调查后,于去年九月份在图森南部60英里远,拥有2.5万人的城镇办公室将这位前镇长逮捕。
The former mayor was arrested last September at his office in the town of 25,000, about 60 miles south of Tucson, after a five-month FBI investigation. He was accused of accepting bribes to award city contracts without the normal bidding process and to protect contracts already in place.
他被指控未经过常规的招标过程而接收贿赂批准城建合同,同时袒护着这些合同。
The seven-year probation sentence, which will begin after Von Borstel's release from prison, was part of an agreement in which the former mayor pleaded guilty to falsely reporting that $3.2 million worth of money orders was sold at his father's business. He then deposited more than $600,000 worth of the money orders in a bank account.
七年缓刑的执行将从冯·博斯特尔从监狱释放后开始,这是协议的一部分。这位前镇长承认了欺骗的罪行,因其曾将价值320万美元的合同订单承包给了其父亲。然后,他又在银行的账户中存储了价值60万美元的订单。
Charges of theft and money-laundering were dropped in the plea deal.
偷窃罪和洗钱的控诉已经从认罪协议中除去。
Octavio Garcia Suarez, 59, Von Borstel's father and an agent for Western Union, was also charged in the case.
奥克塔维奥·加西亚苏亚雷斯,今年59岁,是冯·博斯特尔的父亲。身为一名西方联盟的代理商,在这次案件中,他也被起诉。
Dressed in a dark suit and tie, the former mayor told the judge he was in court to take responsibility for his actions. He accepted the plea agreement to save taxpayers the expense of a trial, his lawyer told the judge.
前镇长身着黑色西装和领带,告诉法官,他的律师告诉法官,他在法庭上会为自己的行为负责,他接受辩诉协议从而为纳税人减少审判的花费。
The plea agreement includes a restitution order under which Von Borstel will have to pay back the money he took from Western Union.
认罪协议包括一项归还令,要求冯·博斯特尔必须向西方联盟归还钱财。
