The two remaining co-defendants in the Peanut Corporation of America (PCA) case were sentenced to jail time today in an Albany, GA federal court.

Samuel Lightsey and Daniel Kilgore--both former plant managers at PCA--received 72 months (6 years) and 36 months (3 years) respectively for their roles in the peanut butter tainted with Salmonella outbreak that caused nine deaths and sickened at least 700 others in 2008 and 2009. Both will serve their time in federal prison, which will then be followed by 3 years of supervised release for each.

During the PCA trial, Lightsey and Kilgore both served as government witnesses, their testimony likely contributing to shorter sentences.

Last week, former PCA owner Stewart Parnell was sentenced to 28 years in federal prison--the heftiest punishment of all the defendants--for knowingly approving shipments of the contaminated peanut butter. His brother, Michael Parnell, will serve 20 years. Former PCA quality assurance manager Mary Wilkerson was sentenced to 5 years.
