Thompson Gets 18 Month Sentence
A federal judge in Milwaukee today sentenced former DOA civil servant Georgia Thompson to 18 months in prison, a $4,000 fine and three years of supervised release.
In June, a federal jury found Thompson guilty on two felony counts for steering a state travel contract to a Milwaukee travel company whose executives donated to Gov. Jim Doyle.
She faced a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison. In a brief filed yesterday, the prosecution requested a sentence of two years in prison. Earlier, the defense had requested probation for Thompson.
