Hooks sentencing: What should he get?

Michael Hooks, Sr. is due to be sentenced on federal bribery charges today.  Hooks entered a guilty plea to taking $24,000 in bribe money.   He has publicly accepted responsibility.  How much time do you think he should get?

By comparison, Roscoe Dixon, the former State Senator who challenged the charges against him, went to trial and was convicted, was sentenced to five years for taking half as much money.  He has also since publicly decried the U.S. Attorney's office for playing racist politics by seeking indictments against black democrats.

What do you think?
