Householder Sentenced to 20 Years in Prison for State’s Largest Bribery Scheme

He was sentenced this morning in Cincinnati

Former Ohio House Speaker Larry Householder was sentenced to 20 years in prison after being convicted in the largest bribery scheme in state history.

Householder served Ohio for a decade as a lawmaker, now he’s going to be serving for twice that long — as an inmate in federal prison.

Householder was sentenced by federal judge Timothy Black in United States District Court in Cincinnati Thursday morning, over three months after he and ex-GOP chair Matt Borges were found guilty by a federal jury for participating in the largest public corruption case in state history. Householder passed a nearly $61 million scheme for a billion-dollar bailout, House Bill 6, at the expense of taxpayers.
