The Vegas Corruption Cases

The Las Vegas Review Journal reports here that "Former Clark County Commissioner Dario Herrera was sentenced to 50 months in prison" and  "Former Clark County Commissioner Mary Kincaid-Chauncey was sentenced this morning to 30 months in prison."  Some white collar offenders are not being given significant breaks in the sentence.  For example, prosecutors in the first case, a case where the individual received a 50 month sentence, asked for 51 months.  The prosecutions result from a corruption investigation including an alleged bribe from a strip club owner. The Las Vegas Review Jrl has a web page here noting the entries from the Vegas corruption cases.
