    The U.S. Probation Office recommended former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell spend at least a decade in prison for his corruption conviction.

    In September, McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, were convicted for accepting more than $175,000 in gifts and loans.

    The probation office suggested a range from 10 years and a month to 12 years and seven months.

    Sentencing is set for January.
