Gasper Fiore was sentenced Thursday in federal court in Port Huron for conspiracy to commit bribery. He also was ordered to serve two years supervised release and pay a $10,000 fine.
The 57-year-old Fiore of Grosse Pointe Shores pleaded guilty late last year. He admitted to giving $7,000 to Dean Reynolds who was a trustee in Macomb County’s Clinton Township.

The government said the money was funneled through an executive at a trash-hauling company, who has also pleaded guilty to corruption.
A jury convicted Reynolds of corruption in June.
The federal corruption investigation has resulted in charges against 20 people.
