Judge postpones sentencing of former congressional candidate Wilson-Foley to Jan. 20
NEW HAVEN — A federal judge has postponed the sentencing of former Republican congressional candidate Lisa Wilson-Foley in the campaign finance scandal that also led to the conviction of former Connecticut Gov. John Rowland.
Lisa Wilson-Foley is now scheduled to be sentenced on January 20 at 2:30 p.m.
Wilson-Foley and her husband pleaded guilty last March to conspiring to hide $35,000 they paid the former Republican governor for help with Wilson-Foley’s 2012 campaign in the state’s 5th District.
Arterton sentenced Brian Foley on Friday to three years of probation, including three months in a halfway house, for his role in the conspiracy.
Prosecutors are requesting a 10-month prison sentence for Wilson-Foley, who unlike her husband, did not testify against Rowland.
