A business executive who had pleaded guilty to accepting nearly $250,000 in bribes and kickbacks on defense contracts was sentenced in Los Angeles federal court to six months in a community treatment facility and three years’ probation. Chester Eugene Adamsky, 50, of San Diego solicited the kickbacks from three subcontractors while working for Raytheon Co., a Massachusetts-based defense contractor, prosecutors said. U.S. District Judge Mariana R. Pfaelzer ordered that Adamsky, who no longer works for Raytheon, be placed in a community facility near his home, where he will be able to keep his job with an auto dealership and perform 500 hours of community service during his probation. Prosecutors had asked that Adamsky be sentenced to a prison term, but Pfaelzer refused, saying Adamsky had cooperated with federal investigators and had admitted that what he did was wrong.
