U.S. District Court Judge William H. Pauley III sentenced Igor Tsimerman (ZEE’-muhr-man) to two years and Rostislav Belyansky (roh-TSEE’-slahv behl-LAHN’-skee) to 18 months in Manhattan federal court Friday.
The two men pleaded guilty last September to bribery charges.
Prosecutors say Stevenson helped their Bronx adult center get its electrical needs met before introducing a bill in the state legislature to ban competitors from opening near the adult center for three years.
Stevenson was convicted earlier this month. His lawyer has said the government used a corrupt informant to trick him.
Attorney information for Belyanksy wasn’t immediately available and Tsimerman’s lawyer didn’t return a message seeking comment.
