Former Ocean County Republican Chairman George Gilmore was sentenced to a year and one day in prison and three years probation Wednesday.

Gilmore, who helmed the state’s most powerful Republican organization for more than 20 years, was convicted on federal tax charges last year.

The details of his sentencing were first reported by Politico New Jersey.

A jury found Gilmore was guilty of failing to file employee payroll taxes and of making false statements on a bank loan application.

It found him not guilty of charges that claimed he filed false tax returns and did not return a verdict on tax evasion charges.

Gilmore will also receive mandatory mental health treatment. During Gilmore’s trial, his defense team claimed he failed to pay taxes because of a hoarding disorder.
