THE Sandiganbayan Third Division on Friday sentenced to a six-month jail term a former mayor of Allacapan, Cagayan, for failing to liquidate some P1.08-million in cash advances some eight years ago.

In a 14-page decision, the Court also fined former mayor Delfin Agcaoili of Allacapan P1,000 after he was found guilty of violating Section 89 of Presidential Decree 1445,  a law mandating government officials and employees to immediately account for their cash advances.
