The five ex-officials were convicted last year of five counts of misappropriation of public funds and acquitted of five other counts of the same charge. The case stemmed from a scandal that began with revelations in 2010 that the Bell city manager, Robert Rizzo, was paid a salary of $787,000 - or nearly twice that of President Barack Obama.
