TRENTON - The former mayor of New Jersey's capital city has been sentenced to 58 months in federal prison for corruption.

Forty-eight-year-old Tony Mack was sentenced Thursday in federal court. Earlier this year, a jury found him guilty of bribery, fraud and extortion after he was busted as part of a government sting.

His brother Ralphiel Mack was also convicted of participating in a scheme to take bribes in exchange for helping get approvals to develop a parking garage. The former high school football coach was sentenced to 30 months in prison.

Mack remained in office for 19 days after his conviction before a judge ordered him removed from office in February. The judge also stripped Mack of his taxpayer-funded pension.
