RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Former Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife have put their suburban Richmond home on the market. The Richmond Times-Dispatch reported Friday that Bob and Maureen McDonnell are seeking $944,000 for the 5,000-square-foot home. They purchased the home in 2006 for $835,000, according to Henrico County records. The house is assessed at $813,800. A federal jury in September found the McDonnells guilty of doing favors for a nutritional supplements executive in exchange for more than $165,000 in gifts and loans. The former governor was sentenced to two years in prison. His wife was sentenced to one year and one day. Both are free on bond while they appeal.
