Prosecutors advocate for 17.5 year sentence for Norfolk City Treasurer

NORFOLK, Va. – Prosecutors say they plan to push for a 17-and-a-half year sentence for Norfolk City Treasurer Anthony Burfoot, according to a court filing posted Monday.

The city suspended Burfoot after a jury found him guilty on corruption and perjury charges in December.

A motions hearing on the case is set for Wednesday. His sentencing is set for Monday.

Burfoot’s attorney still maintains his client’s innocence.
