NEW YORK (AP) — A former campaign treasurer for a New York City official's unsuccessful bid for mayor has been sentenced to 10 months in prison.
Federal Judge Richard Sullivan sentenced Jia (JEE'-uh) "Jenny" Hou (how) on Thursday. He said he hoped her May conviction for attempted wire fraud, obstructing justice and making false statements would not lead to her deportation. The Queens resident moved to the United States from China when she was 11.
Her crimes stemmed from her job as campaign treasurer for City Comptroller John Liu (loo). She conceded she was too inexperienced when she accepted it in 2011 at age 24.
Her co-defendant — former fundraiser Xing (zihng) "Oliver" Wu Pan — was sentenced Thursday to four months in prison. He was convicted of conspiracy and attempted wire fraud.
