The Sandiganbayan has found Alfonso Castañeda Mayor Jerry Pasigian guilty of graft and malversation in relation to an anomalous purchase of a government vehicle.
The case against Pasigian stemmed from the purchase of a P1.269-million-Nissan Patrol without public bidding in April 2009.
The Nueva Vizcaya politiko was sentenced to six to 15 years in prison for the graft charges and four to seven years for malversation charges.
The Sandiganbayan has also ordered Pasigian to pay around P450,000 for the depreciated value of the vehicle.
Pasigian was also perpetually disqualified from public office.
