By AP/KWMU

St. Louis – The former city manager of the St. Louis suburb of Berkeley was sentenced Friday to nearly four years in prison for bribery and mail fraud.

Joseph King was also ordered to pay more than $27,000 in restitution for taking bribes from an insurance broker.

King was city manager from 2002 through October.

U.S. Attorney Catherine Hanaway said King took more than $30,000 in bribes in exchange for awarding contracts for property and casualty insurance and workers' compensation insurance.
