SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — A federal judge has sentenced a former Orange County four months in prison plus four months of home confinement for bribing officials in Greece.

City News Service reports 60-year-old David Edmonds was also ordered Monday to pay a $20,000 fine for violating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.

Edmonds worked for Control Components Inc. when he bribed officials in the Greek government in July 2003.
