HARRISON, N.Y. -- Disgraced Westchester attorney Anthony J. Mangone of Harrison was sentenced Thursday to one year and a day behind bars, according to a report by lohud.com.
Six years ago, Mangone pleaded guilty in a political corruption case to charges that included bribery, conspiracy and extortion, according to a report by The New York Times.
The disbarred lawyer also pleaded guilty in a separate tax fraud case, according to multiple media reports.
He was originally given 18 months in prison and fined $15,000 last December by U.S. District Judge Colleen McMahon, but that sentence was tossed out after an appeals court found that McMahon had based it on the wrong guidelines, lohud.com reported.
Mangone could have gotten up to 45 years in prison for the bribery charge and tax fraud charges, the lohud.com report said.
Both prosecutors and defense lawyers had sought to spare Mangone prison time due to his cooperation which helped bring down state senators Nicholas A. Spano, Vincent Leibell and the late Thomas W. Libous; former Yonkers councilwoman Sandy Annabi, and Zehy Jereis, the former head of the Republican Party in Yonkers, the lohud.com article said.
