Former Republican fundraiser Tom Noe has been sentenced to 18 years in prison for embezzling from a state investment in rare coins.
The coin dealer was convicted last week of theft, corrupt activity and other charges in a scandal that contributed to the Republican Party's loss of the governor's office. Noe had faced at least 10 years in prison.
Noe declined to make a statement before his sentence was read Morning morning in a Toledo courtroom. He also will serve two years and three months in federal prison for pleading guilty earlier this year to funneling $45,000 to President George W. Bush's re-election campaign.
