A former mayor of Temple City has been sentenced to four years in prison for bribery and perjury.

Cathe Wilson, 78, was convicted last month of taking money from a developer for a building project in 2007 and lying to a grand jury the next year.

Following her sentencing Thursday, Wilson started to cry and appeared to have a medical problem. She was taken from the courtroom on a gurney.
