Former state employee sentenced for extortion

LOS ANGELES - A former state employee who was charged with inspecting alcohol and drug abuse programs has been sentenced to more than three years in prison for trying to extort more than $100,000.

Gary Goethe of Sacramento was sentenced Monday by U.S. District Judge Gary Feess. Goethe pleaded guilty in May to four counts of extortion under color of official right and two counts of bribery.

Goethe worked for the state's Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs and went to alcohol and drug treatment clinics throughout California to inspect records and documentation related to Medi-Cal billings.

He was arrested in July 2009 after he accepted $3,500 as part of a bribe he negotiated.

Federal prosecutors say Goethe demanded more than $100,000 from two rehabilitation facility owners in exchange for helping out their businesses.
