SPRING VALLEY - Former Spring Valley Mayor Noramie Jasmin was sentenced Friday to four years in prison on federal corruption charges.

Jasmin was in April found guilty of wire fraud, extortion and taking a $5,000 bribe in connection with a proposed community center in Spring Valley.

When issuing the verdict, White Plains federal court Judge Colleen McMahan said that Jasmin's conduct as part of the FBI sting operation was "depressing."

State Sen. Malcolm Smith and several New York City Republican Party officials are also heading to prison after the wide-ranging "Corridor of Corruption" investigation also revealed additional bribes and kickbacks for political gain.

Joseph Desmaret, Jasmin's ex-deputy mayor, was sentenced to three years in prison for his role in the "Corridor of Corruption" case.

Jasmin will report to a currently unnamed federal prison in early November.
