GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - The mayor of Green Bay has been sentenced to do community service and pay a fine for violating the state’s campaign finance law.

Mayor Jim Schmitt pleaded guilty to three misdemeanors. On Monday a judge in Brown County sentenced him to perform 40 hours of community service and pay a $4,000 fine.
