A former Fiesta Bowl chief executive who admitted to participating in an illegal campaign contribution scheme is asking a federal judge to sentence him next week to probation for his conviction.
Prosecutors are seeking a one-year prison sentence for a former Fiesta Bowl chief executive who admitted to participating in an illegal campaign contribution scheme, saying the longtime bowl leader should be granted some leniency for cooperating with authorities but should ultimately serve time behind bars because he abused his position of power.
