A 77-year-old Sherman man was sentenced Friday to seven years in prison for attempting to bribe a judge to influence a grand jury investigation into the 1984 disappearance of his wife. Dominic Badaracco was also sentenced to three years of probation by Superior Court Judge Robert Devlin, who said such crimes ‘‘strike at the heart’’ of the criminal justice system. Badaracco was convicted in July of offering $100,000 to state Superior Court Judge Robert Brunetti to influence a one-man grand jury convened in 2010, looking into Mary Badaracco’s unsolved disappearance. Brunetti testified that on Nov. 17, 2010, Badaracco called him at his home and asked for his help, saying: ‘‘I’m only going to say this one time. . . . It’s worth 100 Gs.’’
