JT Burnette is sentenced to three years in prison for his role in a corruption probe at Tallahassee City Hall.
Also, on today’s Sunrise:

— As the Senate prepares to give a first look at draft redistricting maps, advocates for Fair Districts give the entire process a failing grade.
— Two Sunrise interviews! The first features longtime Tallahassee reporter Mike Vasilinda, who covered the sentencing of Burnette after an expansive corruption at City Hall that might’ve led to tanking Gillum.
— Ellen Freiden, CEO and General Counsel for Fair Districts Now discusses the failing grade to Florida’s redistricting process. She’s here to break down why.
