A former child actress who claimed she was sexually harassed by former Fox News contributor Candi Hanley has pleaded guilty to violating the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act, court documents show.
Kristy Mancini, 39, was sentenced Friday in federal court in Chicago to 18 months in prison.
She was the former host of the daytime talk show “Kristy Kallen’s Candy Kitchen” and has been married to former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg since 1999.
Mancini said she felt she was in a position to report harassment by Hanley, who she said she met while filming the TV show “Candi,” on Fox News.
Mancinini filed a complaint with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission alleging that Hanley sexually harassed her in 2005 when she was 16.
Hanley was fired from Fox News in 2007, the complaint said.
In her plea agreement, Mancino said she agreed to plead guilty to one count of making a false statement to the Fair Credit Report system in connection with her employment with the Fox News Channel.
She also agreed to pay $3,000 to settle her complaint, court records show.
Hanley, 55, pleaded guilty in May to making false statements to the credit reporting agencies.
She served two years in federal prison for making false claims to the bureau.
