(Reuters) - A former U.S. Homeland Security special agent was sentenced on Friday to three years in prison for taking bribes in exchange for getting an indicted Colombian drug kingpin dismissed from a case against the once-powerful Cali cartel, court records showed.

Christopher Ciccione, 52, a veteran of the Navy and Army National Guard, pleaded guilty in Miami federal court in November to conspiracy to defraud the United States, two months after his arrest.
