EL PASO, Texas (AP) — A federal judge has sentenced a former El Paso political consultant to 10-months in prison for his part in a bribery scheme.

Federal prosecutors say Antonio Dill also was sentenced Wednesday to two years of supervised release for his part in a scheme to bribe El Paso County Judge Anthony Cobos, the county's top elected official between 2007 and 2010.

Cobos was sentenced Friday to four years in prison for his part in the scheme. Former Bear Stearns employee Roberto "Bobby" Ruiz received a two-year prison term last month for his part in the scheme to bribe Cobos to steer a $40 million county debt refinancing to him.

Former El Paso City Council member Raymond R. Telles was placed on five years of probation.
