SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A millionaire recycling plant owner who admitted to bribing San Francisco’s public works director with gifts that included a $36,000 gold Rolex watch has been sentenced to a year and a day in federal prison.
Florence Kong also was ordered Thursday to pay a $95,000 fine for bribing a public official and making false statements to the FBI.
She acknowledged bribing former public works director Mohammed Nuru. He and Kong are among nearly a dozen people who have been charged in an ongoing City Hall corruption probe.
Multiple city department heads have been forced to resign.
