A former U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) official was sentenced Friday to 132 months in prison to be followed by three years of supervised release, and restitution to the VA in the sum of $155,000.

James King, 63, of Baltimore, Md. previously pleaded guilty to one count of honest services and money/property wire fraud, one count of bribery of a public official, and one count of falsifying records to obstruct an investigation, according to the Justice Department.

King admitted to demanding and receiving bribes from three for-profit schools in exchange for enrolling disabled military veterans in those schools and facilitating over $2 million in payments from the VA using the veterans’ federal benefits.
