WHITE PLAINS, New York — A retired FBI agent has been sentenced in New York to five years in prison nearly six months after receiving a 10-year prison sentence in a Utah prosecution.
Robert Lustyik was sentenced Monday in White Plains federal court for his conviction in a bribery scheme in which secret law enforcement information was sold for cash.
In March, Lustyik was sentenced to the longer prison term in Salt Lake City after he was accused of trying to derail a Utah investigation into an alleged defense contractor kickback scheme. The 53-year-old must serve the prison terms consecutively.
Prosecutors say Lustyik's crimes were driven by greed and corruption. The bribery scheme stretched from September 2011 through March 2012. The Utah crimes occurred in 2011. Lustyik retired in 2012.
