LOS ANGELES (AP) - Prosecutors have recommended six months of jail time plus probation and community service for former Los Angeles Councilman Richard A. Alarcon who was convicted of perjury and voting fraud for living outside the district he was elected to represent.

The district attorney’s office filed a sentencing memorandum Tuesday seeking 180 days behind bars, 5 years of probation and 1,000 hours of community service. They recommend that 500 of those hours should be spent removing graffiti at facilities in Los Angeles county.

They also sought a sentence of five years’ probation and 500 hours of community service for Alarcon’s wife, Flora Montes de Oca Alarcon.

Alarcon served on the council from 1993 to 1998 and again from 2007 to 2013. He also had served as a state senator and state assemblyman.
