The owner of recycling business has received prison time for bribing former San Francisco Public Works Director Mohammed Nuru, as part of an ongoing corruption probe by federal officials.
On Thursday, Judge William Orrick sentenced Florence Kong to one year and one day in prison after pleading guilty to bribing a public official and making false statements to FBI agents. Following her prison term, Kong was also sentenced to three years of supervised release. Kong, a Hayward resident who previously lived in Hillsborough, has also been ordered to pay a $95,000 fine.
Prosecutors said Kong, who owned SFR Recovery Inc., showered Nuru with gifts for directing business to her company, which had a public contract with the city to dispose of construction debris. Among the gifts given to Nuru was a Rolex watch worth $36,550.
