Collins Asks Friends For Character Endorsements

Former Republican Congressman Chris Collins is looking for help in getting a lenient sentence.

The Buffalo News reports he's sent an e-mail to friends and associates, asking them to reach out to the federal judge handling his insider trading case.

In the e-mail, Collins said it's important for the judge to get letters highlighting his years of public service and accomplishments.

Collins is facing up to 4 years and 9 months in prison when he's sentenced in January.
