The owner of a consulting firm has been sentenced in a bribery scandal involving the D.C. government's technology office.

Sushil Bansal, 43, of Dunn Loring, Va., was sentenced Friday to two concurrent 20-month prison terms. He pleaded guilty in April to bribery of a public official and engaging in monetary transactions in property derived from specified unlawful activity. His company, Advanced Integrated Technology Corp., also pleaded guilty to the same charges.

Bansal and his company were also ordered to pay more than $844,000 in restitution to the D.C. government.

Bansal admitted that between September 2005 and March 2009, he and his company paid more than $700,000 in bribes to three employees of the D.C. Office of the Chief Technology Officer.

Prosecutors said in exchange for the bribes, public officials favored Bansal when awarding contracts.
