Ex-IRS agent sentenced to 30 months in prison
A former Internal Revenue Service special agent was sentenced to 30 months in prison Monday on bribery charge convictions.
A jury in September convicted Matthew Thompson of taking $6,000 from local attorney Bill May in exchange for influencing the outcome of a criminal investigation against a client of May's, according to court records.
Thompson's attorney said that May was working with federal agents in an attempt to set up his client, according to court records.
Thompson was also convicted of receiving an unauthorized fee for performing his duty as an IRS agent, according to authorities.
In addition to the prison sentence, U.S. District Judge Hayden W. Head Jr. fined Thompson $50,000. He also was ordered to serve a three-year term of supervised release after his discharge from federal prison.
