BROWNSVILLE - Attorney Ray Roman Marchan of Port Isabel on Thursday was sentenced to more than three years in prison for public corruption.
Marchan, 55, was convicted on six counts of corruption in the FBI's corruption case against former Judge Abel Limas.
Marchan was indicted on June 22, 2011, after a three-year investigation of corruption by then judge Limas.
A judge handed Marchan a 42-month term in federal prison followed by three years of supervised release.
Marchan is free on bond and will be allowed to remain free until he voluntarily surrenders to a U.S. Bureau of Prisons facility at a date in the near future.
