Upland contractor John Hennes is scheduled to be sentenced today in U.S. District Court in Riverside.

Hennes was indicted in March 2011 with former Upland Mayor John Pomierski. He pleaded guilty to two of the 11 felonies in the indictment.

Pomierski was sentenced this month to two years in prison for accepting a $5,000 payment from the property owner of Chronic Cantina restaurant in Upland in exchange for helping him obtain a conditional-use permit. The indictment alleged Hennes communicated Pomierski’s demands to the owner of Chronic Cantina and collected money on his behalf.
