HARTFORD - Former Connecticut Gov. John Rowland has been sentenced to 30 months in prison.

A judge handed down the sentence today for Rowland's conviction in a political consulting scam.

Rowland was convicted of trying to hide his role in the congressional campaign of Lisa Wilson Foley through a phony job with her husband's company.

He previously spent 10 months in prison after pleading guilty to corruption related charges in 2004.
