Lobbyist Sentenced To Four Years


WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Choking back tears, Abramoff delivered a highly emotional plea for the judge to exercise leniency, but readily admitted he had done wrong.

"I stand before you a broken man," he said during the two-hour sentencing hearing. "I am not the same man."

Abramoff has served 22 months in prison on a separate conviction involving casinos in Florida. The judge said that the new four-year term will run concurrently with the remainder of that sentence.
