(Harrisburg) -- A 37-year-old man from Lebanon has been sentenced to 12 months in federal prison for conspiring to receive bribes while serving in Afghanistan.

Timothy Albright pled guilty to the charges in March of last year.

They stem from his deployment to Afghanistan as a memer of the U-S Army.

Prosecutors say he received at least $25,000 in bribes from Afghan vendors who wanted their goods processed quickly.

He also got a supervisor involved in the scheme, and they split the proceeds.

As part of his sentence, Albright will also have to pay $16,000 in restitution.
