An Arizona lobbyist who was targeted in a Fiesta Bowl corruption probe has been sentenced to 200 hours of community service and one year of unsupervised probation.

Gary Husk was a leading figure in the Fiesta Bowl case but avoided any charges related to that probe after a lengthy investigation. In a deal with prosecutors, the 56-year-old pleaded guilty to a single misdemeanor charge of conspiracy to make a prohibited contribution.

Husk has already paid $30,000 in restitution, plus about $1,800 in fines. He was sentenced Monday.

Husk was charged with using his firm’s money to reimburse staffers who made contributions to politicians such as Gov. Jan Brewer.

The case against him arose from a fraud investigation into the Fiesta Bowl. His firm represented the bowl from March 2000 to January 2011.

  1. Slap on the wrist for those in power and their cronies. Another set of laws for the ordinary people. Very Arizona.
