Former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik was sentenced to four years in prison on Thursday after pleading guilty to eight felony charges. Among these were tax fraud and lying to Bush administration officials during his unsuccessful nomination for US Secretary of Homeland Security in 2004.
