PHILADELPHIA — A former traffic court judge in Philadelphia convicted of lying to the FBI in a sweeping ticket-fixing case is facing 20 months in prison.

Willie Singletary was sentenced Thursday in federal court.

Three of Singletary's co-defendants, all judges, were convicted with him last summer.

The indictment had portrayed the city's traffic court as a patronage pit where judges routinely fixed tickets for friends and allies, but Singletary and his three co-defendants were acquitted of the lead conspiracy and fraud charges.

Several other judges pleaded guilty before trial.

Philadelphia traffic cases are now handled by the city's municipal court.
