Thompson Sentencing Hearing Today
The sentencing hearing for convicted former DOA employee Georgia Thompson started at 9:30 a.m. in Milwaukee today.
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 faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.
In a brief filed yesterday, the prosecution requested two years in prison and also asked the judge to deny her request for bail pending appeal. Earlier, the defense had requested probation for Thompson.
