ALBANY, New York — A prominent Albany-area developer has been sentenced to probation and community service for violating state election law in a case linked to a government corruption investigation in a suburban town.

Local media report that 68-year-old Bruce Tanski of Halfmoon was sentenced Monday in a Saratoga County court to three years' probation and 200 hours community service and ordered to pay $1,000 fine.

Tanski pleaded guilty in November under a plea agreement with the state attorney general's office.

Tanski, owner of Tanski Construction and Development, was charged last August with using business associates to conceal some of his political donations.

Tanski's holdings in Saratoga County include commercial properties, a golf course and thousands of apartments.

In 2013, authorities indicted Halfmoon Supervisor Melinda Wormuth on federal bribery and extortion charges. She later resigned.
