Tom Noe gets18 years.
A former GOP fundraiser at the center of a scandal-plagued state investment in rare coins that helped Democrats seize power in the midterm elections was sentenced Monday to 18 years in prison.
Tom Noe, a prominent coin dealer accused of taking at least $2 million, was convicted last week of theft, corrupt activity, money laundering, forgery and tampering with records.
“Based on a review of the record, a short prison term would demean your conduct,” Lucas County Common Pleas Judge Thomas Osowik told Noe.
