Dennis Hastert once served eight years in the House, now he’ll serve time in the big house.   The former House Speaker was sentenced today by Judge Thomas Durkin for sexually abusing teenagers while coaching high school wrestling.

Durkin called Hastert a “serial child molester”before ordering him to undergo sex-offender treatment, spend two years on supervised release after 15 months behind bars and pay a $250,000 fine to a crime victims’ fund.

Hastert becomes one of the highest-ranking politicians in American history to be sentenced to prison. He pleaded guilty last fall to violating banking law as he sought to pay $3.5 million to someone referred to in court papers only as Individual A to keep the sex abuse secret.
