PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) -- Panhandle developer Jay Odom was sentenced to six months in federal prison after pleading guilty to a charge of making illegal contributions in the 2008 presidential primary.
A federal judge sentenced Odom, who owns Destin Jet, on Tuesday morning. He faced up to five years in prison.
Federal investigators alleged that he illegally funneled $23,000 to the campaign of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.
Odom circumvented federal finance laws by repaying 10 associates who each gave a maximum $2,300 donation to Huckabee.
