A San Francisco real estate developer who was sentenced earlier this week for tax evasion has been given a second federal prison term in a separate case for poaching protected steelhead trout. Luke Brugnara, 46, will serve the two sentences concurrently, according to U.S. Attorney’s Office spokesman Jack Gillund. In the more recent sentencing, Brugnara was ordered by U.S. District Judge Maxine Chesney in San Francisco on Wednesday to serve one year and three months in prison for harming steelhead trout on property he owns in Gilroy
