Abramoff Scandal
Ex-Bush official faces sentence for Abramoff conviction


Former Bush administration official David Safavian faces up to 20 years in jail and $1 million in fines for being convicted of lying and obstructing justice.

Safavian will be sentenced October 20. He is the first person in the Jack Abramoff scandal to undergo a trial and was found guilty by a federal jury of four felony counts.

But won't be the only member of Team Abramoff in jail. Abramoff and three associates have pleaded guilty and await their prison sentences.
