Third-generation County Commissioner Sammy Yearty has ordered to serve 33 months in federal prison followed by three years probation and pay $10,300 in fines for soliciting and accepting a part of a $10,000 bribe from an undercover FBI agent posing as a developer and lying to the FBI about it. Yearty, who has held office since being appointed in 1978 by then-Gov. Reubin Askew, was sentenced on Monday afternoon in Gainesville by federal District Chief Judge Stephan P. Mickle after a string of supporters testified to his many kindnesses and the good job he has done in office.
