Congressman Collins sentenced to 26 months in prison

Former Congressman Chris Collins will spend upwards of two years in prison after being sentenced on Friday.

It was part of his insider trading case, which involved a guilty plea.

He admitted to a pair of felony charges, and was sentenced to 26 months in prison.

Collins’s attorneys have requested he serve his sentence in a Florida minimum-security prison.

Collins’s son, Cameron, and Stephen Zarsky, are expected to be sentenced next week.
