NORFOLK, Va. - A federal judge is set to sentence suspended Norfolk City Treasurer Anthony Burfoot Monday morning.
In December, a jury found Burfoot guilty of six of the eight charges he was facing for public corruption and perjury. He was facing 4 perjury charges but only found guilty of two of those charges.
Federal prosecutors are seeking a sentence of 17.5 years. However, a court filing states that Burfoot’s attorney is asking he serve no more than two years.
Burfoot's attorney also filed new motions in hopes of getting him a new trial - citing newly discovered evidence.
Sentencing is scheduled for 11 a.m.
