Prosecutors Want Va.'s Maureen McDonnell to Serve 18 Months

Friday, 06 Feb 2015 10:53 PM

Federal prosecutors are seeking an 18-month term behind bars for Virginia's former first lady, but Maureen McDonnell's lawyers say she should be allowed to do 4,000 hours of community service for her corruption conviction last September.

Prosecutors and defense lawyers filed memos Friday arguing their positions ahead of her Feb. 20 sentencing by U.S. District Judge James Spencer, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reports.

Spencer sentenced ex-Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell to just two years, though prosecutors had sought a 10-year term.

The couple were convicted of doing favors for businessman Jonnie Williams in exchange for more than $165,000 in loans and gifts.
