Conservative filmmaker James O’Keefe was sentenced to three years of probation, 100 hours of community service and a $1,500 fine after he pleaded guilty on Wednesday to misdemeanor charges stemming from his involvement in a break-in at Sen. Mary Landrieu’s (D-La.) office.
In January, O’Keefe and three others were arrested by federal authorities at Landrieu’s office on allegations of phone-tampering.
Prosecutors initially said they caught four individuals in the process of committing a felony, but the charges were later reduced to misdemeanors.
O’Keefe got the toughest sentence. His co-defendants, Stan Dai, Joseph Basel and Robert Flanagan, each got two years of probation, 75 hours of community service and the same fine as O’Keefe.
