HOUSTON - An 80-year-old Houston businessman has been sentenced to two years of probation after he pleaded guilty to making illegal political contributions to U.S. congressional candidates. Prosecutors had sought a two-year prison sentence for James Dannenbaum. But a judge Wednesday opted for probation and a $100,000 fine. Dannenbaum is the former CEO of Houston-based Dannenbaum Engineering Corp. He pleaded guilty last year to violating the Federal Election Campaign Act.
