NEWARK -- Bridget Anne Kelly, a former top aide to the governor whose "time for some traffic problems" email became a focal point of the Bridgegate investigation, was sentenced to 18 months in prison Wednesday -- six months less than her co-defendant in the lane closure case.

Bill Baroni, the former deputy executive director of the Port Authority, received 24 months earlier in the day in a proceeding in the same courtroom before U.S. District Judge Susan Wigenton in Newark.

"This case from the beginning . . . was and is about the abuse of power," the judge said before handing down Kelly's sentence.

Kelly and Baroni were convicted in November of fraud and conspiracy in connection with the scandal that cast a dark shadow over Gov. Chris Christie's administration and loomed large over his failed presidential bid
