NEW YORK (AP) -A federal judge in Brooklyn has sentenced former NBA referee Tim Donaghy to 15 months in prison for taking payoffs from a professional gambler for inside tips on games.
Donaghy's sentencing closes a chapter in a scandal that rocked the NBA. Donaghy could have received up to 33 months at his sentencing Tuesday.
The league has angrily denied Donaghy's claim that corruption among referees runs deeper than one bad referee.
Donaghy pleaded guilty last August to conspiracy to engage in wire fraud and transmitting betting information through interstate commerce.
Last week, two of Donaghy's former high school classmates were sentenced to over a year in prison for their roles in the scheme.
