RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Former Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife have put their suburban Richmond home on the market following their convictions on corruption charges.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/18HOb9O) reported Friday that Bob and Maureen McDonnell are seeking $944,000 for the 5,000-square-foot home. They purchased the home in 2006 for $835,000, according to Henrico County records.

The house is assessed at $813,800.

A federal jury in September found the McDonnells guilty of doing favors for a nutritional supplements executive in exchange for more than $165,000 in gifts and loans. The former governor was sentenced to two years in prison. His wife was sentenced to one year and one day.
