MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A Milwaukee judge has sentenced one of Governor Scott Walker's former top aides to six months in jail and three years' probation for doing campaign work on the taxpayers' time.
Kelly Rindfleisch, 44, pleaded guilty last month to one felony count of misconduct in office in a deal with prosecutors.
She faced up to three-and-a-half years in prison and $10,000 in fines but prosecutors recommended jail time rather than prison and promised not to seek restitution in exchange for her plea.
Judge David Hansher stayed the sentence pending appeal.
Rindfleisch served as Walker's deputy chief of staff during his tenure as Milwaukee County executive in 2010.
Prosecutors accused her of working on Republican Brett Davis' lieutenant governor campaign on county time.
