Robert Braddock, the campaign finance director for former Democratic Congressional candidate Chris Donovan, was found guilty Tuesday on all three counts by a federal jury in a campaign corruption scandal.
The deliberations were brief – about two hours - before the jury rendered its verdict. Braddock now faces up to 12 years in prison and fines as high as $750,000 when he is sentenced in federal court in New Haven in August.
Braddock, a 34-year-old former Marine who was virtually unknown in Connecticut until his arrest, never testified in his own behalf at the trial. His lawyer also did not offer any defense witnesses.
