The former head of key economic development programs for Gov. Andrew Cuomo, including the Buffalo Billion, was sentenced to 3.5 years in prison by a federal judge Tuesday.
Dr. Alain Kaloyeros, who was convicted in July of bid-rigging and other corruption charges, was sentenced Tuesday in Manhattan federal court by Judge Valerie Caproni. She also fined him $100,000.
The judge said Kaloyeros can remain free on bail pending appeal because there was a substantial legal question that the appeals court must consider.
