Former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell was sentenced to two years in prison Tuesday, months after he and his wife were convicted on public corruption charges.

He was stone-faced in court Tuesday as his wife, Maureen, sobbed, reported News4 Northern Virginia Bureau Chief Julie Carey. Both the McDonnells were convicted in September on multiple charges involving accepting more than $165,000 in gifts, trips and loans from a wealthy businessman.



McDonnell must report to the bureau of prisons Feb. 9.

Leading up to Tuesday's sentencing, prosecutors had said 10 to 12 years in prison was appropriate for the former governor. But Tuesday, McDonnell's attorneys successfully made their case that those guidelines had been incorrectly calculated, and the judge adjusted the sentencing guidelines down to six to eight years.

However, McDonnell's attorneys had also asked that he be allowed to perform extensive community service in lieu of prison time.

He was sentenced to two years in prison shortly before 3 p.m.

Maureen McDonnell will be sentenced Feb. 20.
