NATIONAL – Former Speaker Dennis Hastert sentence to 15 months in jail


Dennis Hastert, who was once Speak of the House of Representatives, on Wednesday was sentenced to 15 months in prison for misleading FBI officials and arranging hush money payments so that federal investigators could not determine where the money was going.  Hastert confessed on Wednesday to sexually abusing child victims while working as a wrestling coach in Illinois.  He was also ordered to pay the balance owed to one of his victims.  The amount was promised by Hastert in an effort to keep his victim from going public about the sexual assault.
