Ex-Rep. Hubbard Gets Prison Term for Fraud, Theft

November 10, 1994| From Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Former Rep. Carroll Hubbard Jr. was sentenced Wednesday to three years in prison by a judge who said Hubbard's crimes, including using congressional staffers for campaign chores, "seriously jeopardized" the public's confidence in government.

Seven months after pleading guilty to three felonies, Hubbard, a Democrat from Kentucky, declared himself "contrite, broken, remorseful" and hard-pressed to pay the $153,000 in restitution ordered by U.S. District Judge Louis Oberdorfer.

Hubbard pleaded guilty in April to conspiracy to defraud the U.S. government by lying to the Federal Election Commission, theft and conversion of government property and obstruction of justice.

Assistant U.S. Atty. Thomas Eicher said that Hubbard had used his political contributions on "hairdressers, cable TV" and his wife's 1992 congressional campaign.
