Two men convicted in a videotaped sex sting against an Atlantic City councilman are going to prison.

A judge on Thursday sentenced Ronald Callaway to nine years behind bars. He'll be eligible for parole after four.

Floyd Tally was sentenced to 12 years, with parole eligibility in six.

The judge told the men the crime perpetuates the notion of Atlantic City politics as "a dirty business."

Tally and Callaway were found guilty of conspiracy, criminal coercion and invasion of privacy.

The charges involved the secret videotaping in 2006 of Councilman Eugene Robinson, who's also a Baptist minister. He was lured to a motel and received oral sex from a prostitute hired by the defendants and former Council President Craig Callaway.
