Sentence in Missouri obstruction of justice case is one year

Jeff Smith was sentenced in Missouri today to one year and one day in prison, according to this report.

Two former St. Louis-area lawmakers and a campaign treasurer were sentenced Tuesday in a federal obstruction of justice case tied to a failed 2004 congressional campaign.

Former state Sen. Jeff Smith, D-St. Louis, received the harshest sentence of the three — one year and one day in prison and a $50,000 fine — despite his attorney’s plea that Smith’s stellar community service record made him appropriate for in-home detention.
