Former Salt Lake City councilman Eric Jergensen Sentenced to 59 Months in Prison

This is an update to my earlier stories about former Salt Lake City councilman and former LDS Stake President Eric Jergensen.  In October of 2017 he and an accomplice were convicted of conspiring to defraud an aerospace company of $2.5 million.  A Syracuse, New York jury returned the guilty verdict after a seven-day trial in U.S. District Court.  And finally today, after several delays, Mr. Jergensen was sentenced to 59 months in federal prison and was ordered to pay $2.5 million in restitution to the aerospace company he defrauded.

If you attended the sentencing hearing please post any additional details about how it went in the comments below.
