LOS ANGELES (AP) - The former police chief for the Port of Los Angeles has been sentenced to two years in federal prison for tax evasion.

Ronald Boyd was sentenced Tuesday in connection with his February guilty plea to evasion and lying to the FBI.

Boyd was investigated over allegations that he accepted a financial interest to help a company get a contract to develop a port-based smartphone app.

In his plea agreement, Boyd acknowledged lying to federal investigators about the scheme.

Boyd also acknowledged that he didn’t report income he received from the owner of a guard service company that did business with the port.

In addition to his sentence, Boyd was ordered to pay more than $300,000 in restitution to the IRS.
