SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Former Santa Clara police Officer Clay Rojas, an ex-Marine once wounded in Iraq, will pay a steep price for getting too close to a felon and Hells Angel.

Rejecting Rojas' plea for leniency, a federal judge Wednesday sentenced the disgraced ex-cop to three years in prison for his role in illegally supplying confidential law enforcement information to a Hells Angel to pay off a debt of a few thousand dollars.
