SANTA ANA, California (AP) — A former California congressional candidate accused of sending a mailer to Latino voters in 2006 warning that immigrants could not vote was sentenced Monday, Feb. 14 to a year and a day in prison for obstruction of justice.

Tan Nguyen, a Republican who was running for Congress in Orange County, will also serve six months in a residential re-entry program and three years of supervised release, federal prosecutor Greg Staples said.
