The sentencing Thursday in county court in metro Phoenix marked the second punishment 58-year-old John Junker has received in the last week in the contribution scandal that jeopardized the bowl's NCAA license and led to the ouster of the bowl leader.
A week ago, he was sentenced in federal court to eight months in prison on a conspiracy conviction arising from the scandal.
In both cases, Junker has admitted being involved in a scheme in which bowl employees made illegal campaign contributions to politicians and were reimbursed by the nonprofit bowl.
Employees were reimbursed at least $46,000 for campaign contributions.
