"U.S. District Judge Larry J. McKinney also ordered Plowman to serve two years of supervised release following his prison term. Plowman, 48, was convicted by an Indianapolis jury in September 2011 of attempted extortion and soliciting a bribe between Aug. 11, 2009, and Dec. 22, 2009, while serving as a member of the city-county council."
“Mr. Plowman used his elected office for personal financial gain, betraying the trust placed in him by the people of Indianapolis,” said Assistant Attorney General Breuer. “Today’s sentencing shows that public corruption has a steep price. It weakens democratic institutions and undermines the public’s confidence in government. We are determined to continue holding accountable those officials who abuse their positions.”
