The San Diego Union-Tribune reports:

Margaret Hunter was sentenced Monday to eight months’ home confinement and three years probation for her admitted role in a criminal conspiracy with her husband, former Rep. Duncan Hunter, to illegally use his campaign money for personal purposes.

The sentencing Monday of Margaret Hunter, 45, wife and former campaign manager for former Rep. Duncan Hunter, 43, closes a case that began more than four years ago with questions about unusual campaign spending.

Last year, Margaret and Duncan Hunter each pleaded guilty in separate agreements to one felony count of conspiring to convert more than $150,000 in campaign money to personal use.
