Former Dallas Councilman Dwaine Caraway who also served as the city’s Mayor Pro-Tem has been sentenced to 56 months in prison for accepting bribes, he must also pay $500,000 in restitution.
Caraway struck a plea deal in August 2018.
“I stand before you today embarrassed and ashamed…I let the poison in under the door and [it] got into my nose,” Caraway said during his sentencing. “I look at all of you. I apologize to each and every one of you. I have let a lot of people down,” Caraway said.
The former councilman is expected to report to Federal Prison in May.
