An ex-aide to former Gov. Chris Christie has been resentenced to 13 months in prison for her role in the so-called “Bridgegate” scandal.
Bridget Anne Kelly and co-defendant Bill Baroni were convicted in 2016 in what prosecutors and a co-conspirator said was a plot to cause traffic jams near the George Washington Bridge to punish Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich, who wouldn't endorse Christie's re-election in 2013.
Last fall, a federal appeals court threw out some of the counts against Kelly and Baroni but upheld the most serious ones.
Baroni had his sentence reduced in February from 24 months to 18 months and has begun serving his term.
Kelly was initially sentenced to 18 months. She and Baroni both have petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court to hear their appeal of their convictions.
Kelly will also have to pay $14,314 in restitution to the state, which will go to the Port Authority to make up for lost tolls.
The Associated Press wire services contributed to this report.
