Homayoun Zadeh received the sentence Wednesday from a Boston federal court judge. He previously pleaded guilty to one count of filing a false tax return. Under his plea deal, prosecutors agreed to dismiss more serious charges, including conspiracy to commit federal programs bribery and money laundering conspiracy.
