Three Years for Bribe-|Taking Arizona Banker

     SAN DIEGO (CN) – An Arizona banker was sentenced Tuesday to three years in federal prison as what the judge called “the kingpin in this whole nasty affair,” a multimillion-dollar bribery scandal in secondary mortgages.
     Robert Moreno, a 42-year-old GMAC banker from Tempe, took more than $1 million in bribes to rig bids for mortgages on the secondary market. U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez also ordered him to pay $1,143,560 in restitution to GMAC and $140,941 to the IRS.
     Numerous cohorts already have been sentenced to prison.
