ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - New York authorities say three men have been sentenced in a public bid-rigging scheme unearthed in Monroe County.

The state comptroller and attorney general say the trio schemed to rig bidding for county computer and security system upgrades.

Businessman Daniel Lynch, who pleaded guilty in February to grand larceny and other charges, faces 2 1/3 to 7 years in prison and an order to pay more than $600,000 in county restitution.

Businessman John Maggio faces a year of conditional discharge and has paid $350,000 in restitution and costs for one count of attempted restraint of trade.

Nelson Rivera, former county chief information officer, faces five years’ probation, a $25,000 fine, lost pension, and the loss of $36,000 in pension contributions. He admitted to two counts of restraint of trade.
