SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) — A former San Bernardino city councilman who misused more than $74,000 in campaign donations has been sentenced to 90 days in jail.

The San Bernardino Sun says Chas Kelley was sentenced Friday. He got credit for a day served and can serve the rest on weekends under a work-release program.

Prosecutors say Kelley filed false campaign statements from 2006 to 2012 to conceal his use of campaign funds to pay personal expenses.

Kelley pleaded guilty in October to felony perjury. The plea deal required him to resign from the City Council seat he held for a decade. He's ineligible for future office.

Kelley also was fined about $280.

His attorney, Greg Kassel, says Kelley is remorseful.
