This sentencing brings an end to a three-year financial malfeasance white-collar defense case against the former mayor, Anthony Silva. Former Stockton mayor Silva avoids jail time because in May, Mr. Silva accepted a plea deal wherein several charges against him were dropped, including grand theft, embezzlement, and money laundering in connection with the Kids Club of Stockton. At that time Silva pled no contest to one conflict of interest charge. This charge relates to the former mayor’s directing of $5,000 of public money from a mayoral discretionary fund to the Kids Club of Stockton prior to leaving office in 2013.
