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.
