Federal prosecutors say former Governor Bob McDonnell should serve 10-12 years in prison. His defense attorneys are asking for 3 years of community service. But what is McDonnell likely to receive?
Legal Analyst Todd Stone says Judge James Spencer’s opinion of the former Governor’s sworn testimony is likely to be a key factor in sentencing. But that Spencer may show some mercy because of McDonnell’s age, starting a prison term at 60.
Assistant Dean of the George Mason School of Law, Richard Kelsey says community service is unlikely.
