Former governor Roger Wilson has been sentenced to two years of probation for his part in illegal campaign contributions made to the state Democratic party.
Wilson was indicted and pleaded guilty in April on a misdemeanor campaign finance fraud charge. He admitted to laundering $8,000 dollars in contributions from Missouri Employers Mutual, where he was President and CEO, through a St. Louis law firm. He has also been ordered to pay a $5000 fine, $5000 restitution and serve 100 hours of community service.
A former partner in that law firm, Ed Griesedieck III, also pleaded guilty and has been sentenced to one year of probation, a $5000 fine, $5000 restitution and 100 hours of community service.
