Former Senator Sentenced

Former Senator Marilyn Manibusan was sentenced to five years and eleven months in prison yesterday. Last March, she was found guilty of 21 of 22 charges ranging from extortion to wire fraud and money laundering, all relating to her tenure as chairwoman of the territorial land use commission. Her conspirator in the extortion racket, James Sablan, was sentenced to 3 years probation after he agreed to cooperate with federal authorities against Manibusan.
