CHICAGO (WEEK) -- -

Former McLean County Board Chairman Matt Sorensen was sentenced to a year in federal prison on wire fraud charges Tuesday.

The Pantagraph reports Sorensen was sentenced Tuesday in federal court after submitting hundreds of thousands of dollars of false invoices for consulting work not actually performed for State Farm. Sorensen and business partner Navdeep Arora both pleaded guilty to wire fraud charges in connection with the case. 

Sorensen was fired from his consulting job and resigned as McLean County Board chairman after the charges went public. He must serve at least 85 percent of his sentence.
