     SAN DIEGO (CN) – Former San Ysidro school Superintendent Manuel Paul was sentenced Monday to two months in jail, 120 hours of community service and fined $5,000 for extorting political contributions from a contractor.
     Paul, 63, of Bonita, worked at the school district for 38 years as a teacher, principal and superintendent. He admitted that he asked a contractor for $3,600 in campaign contributions for three school board candidates in the 2010 election.
     The school board hires and fires superintendents. Paul’s three preferred candidates won the election, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.
     Paul must report to the Metropolitan Correctional Center on Jan. 27.
