NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Prosecutors want former Gov. John G. Rowland to serve more than three years in prison for his recent felony conviction. In a court filing, they described Rowland as arrogant, power-hungry, and disdainful of clean election laws.

“This desire was so powerful that Mr. Rowland once again cast aside the public good and his legal obligations to satisfy his own arrogance and hunger for being at the center of political action,” prosecutors wrote in a sentencing memo.

U.S. Attorneys are seeking a punishment of between 40 and 46 months in prison for Rowland’s second corruption conviction. A jury found him guilty in September of conspiring to hide his work on congressional campaigns from federal regulators.
