The finance director for ex-Connecticut Speaker of the House Christopher Donovan’s ill-fated congressional campaign, convicted of accepting bogus campaign contributions, was sentenced to 38 months in federal court Tuesday.

The attorney for Robert Braddock Jr. had asked U.S. District Court Judge Janet Bond Arterton to impose a sentence that does not include jail time, while prosecutors are seeking a sentence within the federal guidelines of 41-51 months in a federal prison.

In sentencing Braddock to less than the guidelines, Arterton cited his 2,000 hours of work with a Florida-based non-profit group that helps feed the hungry in storm-ravaged communities.

Braddock did not address the court.
