NEW YORK (AP) -Prosecutors say disgraced NBA referee Tim Donaghy should get a break at his sentencing for coming clean about his role in a gambling scandal.
A letter from the the U.S. Attorney's office to a judge was unsealed on Tuesday. The letter credits Donaghy with voluntarily providing information that led to indictments and guilty pleas of a professional gambler and an associate.
The letter says the 41-year-old defendant met with investigators four times to brief them on how he took cash payoffs from gamblers and even bet on games himself.
Donaghy has pleaded guilty to federal conspiracy charges. He faces up to 33 months in prison, but his lawyer has asked for probation.
