The former president of a Maryland transportation company was sentenced to four years in federal prison for participating in a scheme to bribe an official at a unit of a Russian nuclear-energy company.
Mark Lambert, 57 years old, was sentenced by a federal judge in Greenbelt, Md., on Wednesday. He also was ordered to serve three years of supervised release and pay a $20,000 fine.
The former Transportation Logistics Inc. executive’s sentence was handed down nearly a year after he was convicted in November last year of various counts of violating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, wire fraud and conspiracy charges.
In sentencing Mr. Lambert, District Judge Theodore Chuang said he had taken into account the executive’s health condition and risks posed by the coronavirus pandemic. Mr. Lambert suffered a near fatal heart attack in 2014, the judge said.
