Feb. 21 (UPI) -- A former Arkansas judge was sentenced to five years in federal prison Wednesday for offering lighter sentences to young male defendants in exchange for sexual favors.

Joseph Boeckmann, 71, was also fined $50,000 "to account for the financial harm he caused through his fraud scheme," the Department of Justice said. Boeckmann faced up to 20 years on each count.
