Former U.S. Representative Michael Grimm was sentenced to eight months in prison for felony tax evasion in Brooklyn federal court on Friday, seven months after he pleaded guilty and resigned from Congress. Grimm, a Republican who represented a district in the New York City borough of Staten Island, admitted in December that he underreported employee wages at Healthalicious, a restaurant he co-owned before embarking on his political career. After pleading guilty to one count, a defiant Grimm vowed not to resign, only to step down a week later after pressure from Republican leadership.

Canavan Jr. rejected Davis' plea for a second chance.
