A federal judge has cut short the sentence of an engineering contractor convicted of paying a series of bribes to a public official in suburban Detroit.
Paulin Modi, 50, had been sentenced last year to one year in prison after the Troy man was convicted of paying bribes totaling $5,000 to a Washington Township official who was cooperating with the FBI.
