INDICTED LAWMAKER
Judge denies former Ohio lawmaker's request for early prison release amid 3-year sentence

Reported by: Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio


A judge has denied a former Ohio lawmaker's request for early release from prison, saying he agreed to serve three years.

Under a plea deal, former state Rep. Clayton Luckie of Dayton was sentenced in January 2013 to the three-year prison term after pleading guilty to election falsification, grand theft and other charges.

State and federal investigators found that Luckie skimmed nearly $130,000 in campaign funds for personal use and failed to list campaign expenditures for six years.

Franklin County Judge Colleen O'Donnell said in her Tuesday ruling that "a bargain is a bargain." She said early release would demean the seriousness of the offenses, and that the court could have imposed a more than 10-year prison term.

Luckie has attributed the crimes to "errors in judgment."
