The former mayor of a suburban New York village has been sentenced to four years in prison for taking bribes.
Noramie Jasmin was mayor of Spring Valley when an FBI operative, posing as a developer, gave her $5,000 and a 50 percent stake in a project.
Federal Judge Colleen McMahon told Jasmin on Friday that she had violated the trust of her constituents, especially young women seeking a role model.
Jasmin’s attorney said he’s appealing the conviction.
Jasmin ran for re-election in 2013 while she was under indictment and was defeated.
The trial included audio and video tapes of Jasmin dealing with undercover FBI agents.
Jasmin’s case was part of a larger corruption investigation that also resulted in the conviction of former Democratic state Sen. Malcolm Smith.
