Sentence is cut for Abramoff

September 11, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

A federal judge in Miami agreed to shave two years off former Washington lobbyist Jack Abramoff's prison sentence for a fraudulent casino boat deal because of his extensive cooperation in that case and a wide-ranging political corruption investigation that upended politics in Washington.

The decision by U.S. District Judge Paul Huck guarantees that Abramoff, 49, will serve no more than an additional four years in prison -- the sentence imposed by a Washington judge last week in the separate corruption case.
