ALEXANDRIA, Virginia — A former Army civilian contracting official has been sentenced to 3.5 years in prison for demanding $500,000 in bribes from a private company seeking to renew a $100 million contract.

The 42-month sentence imposed on 44-year-old James Glenn Warner of Manassas Friday in federal court in Alexandria fell between the 30 months sought by his lawyers and the 87-month term sought by prosecutors.

Warner admitted setting up a lunch meeting with two executives at a private company whose contract was up for renewal. Warner said he would help the company get the deal in exchange for $500,000.

The executives refused and contacted authorities. The executives then worked with the FBI to make payments as part of a sting operation, culminating with Warner accepting $100,000 cash in a McDonald's bag.
