Bruce Thompson Gets Light Sentence in Fraud Case

There were times, during and after Bruce Thompson's
sentencing in federal court on Wednesday, when it almost appeared that the
former county commissioner was there to be given a good citizenship award, not a
punishment for admitted fraud in the amount of a quarter of a million dollars. Assistant U.S. Attorney Tim DiScenza, who can sink
battleships with his ferocity, went extra-light on his prosecutorial rhetoric and
was almost gentle.
