Former Democratic strategist sentenced

CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) -- A former Democratic strategist will be spending more time in prison.

Milton "Skip" Ohlsen III, 38, was sentenced Friday in St. Louis County Circuit Court to four years in prison. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that the sentence was imposed after he pleaded guilty to stealing and unlawful use of a weapon and no contest to a charge of second-degree domestic assault.

Under a plea deal, the sentence will be served concurrently with a 30-month federal prison sentence for federal firearms and bank fraud convictions.

Ohlsen had worked on former Missouri state Sen. Jeff Smith's unsuccessful 2004 congressional campaign and was responsible for the fliers at the center of a federal corruption probe. But the criminal case was unrelated.
