Scannapieco sentenced

Former Marlboro Mayor Matthew Scannapieco was sentenced to 21 months in federal today, three years after pleading guilty to accepting about $245,000 worth of bribes.

Scannapieco admitted in 2005 to accepting payments from developer Anthony Spalliero in exchange for supporting his projects, and pleaded guilty to tax evasion as well.

Scannapieco, served as mayor from 1992 to 2003, could have been sentenced to up to 15 years in prison but was granted a lenient sentence for cooperating with the investigation. Scannapieco sentenced
