HARTFORD, Conn. – Prosecutors have asked a judge to sentence Lisa Wilson-Foley to 10 months in prison despite her pleading guilty to a misdemeanor charge. The feds claim Wilson-Foley was uncooperative in their case against former Gov. John G. Rowland.

In court documents filed Monday, U.S. Attorneys sought nearly a year long sentence for the former Republican 5th congressional district candidate.

“Ms. Wilson-Foley was the candidate and perhaps the only individual with the authority to put a stop to the conspiracy at any time. Instead, she embraced Mr. Rowland’s illicit role in her campaign and took full advantage of the illegal arrangement,” they wrote.
