Olson crony sentenced!

Zimmerman got 2 1/2 years.

Former Minneapolis City Councilman Dean Zimmermann was sentenced today in federal court to two and a half years in prison for taking three bribes totaling $7,200.

U.S. District Judge Ann Montgomery, in handing down the sentence, said that Zimmermann, 64, can have his sentence reduced by seven months if he completes a drug treatment program. Montgomery said Zimmermann admitted to being a regular user of marijuana and drinking beer.
