AKRON, OH (WOIO) -

Michael Gabor, whom was convicted along with Jimmy Dimora in the Cuyahoga County corruption investigation, was sentenced to prison on Tuesday afternoon.

Gabor was sentenced to 10 years and one month behind bars. 

Gabor was convicted of seven charges. His attorney asked for a much shorter sentence than the 28 years Judge Sarah Lioi handed to Dimora. In doing so, he made the point that unlike Dimora, Gabor played a minor role in the crimes he was convicted of. Gabor's financial gain was also far less than Dimora's.

Gabor was a county employee who served as Dimora's errand boy at times.  He was convicted of being a go-between in several bribe schemes involving Dimora and contractors wanting to win county contracts.
