Bribery Probe Accuses Councilman of Corruption


In a recent Los Angeles court hearing involving an ongoing federal bribery probe, a city councilman is currently facing charges including money laundering and lying to federal agents.

Prosecutors claim there was a wide-ranging criminal operation orchestrated by the councilman. They outlined five schemes involving the disgraced councilman in a criminal indictment, including claims that he accepted bribes from developers. What’s more, prosecutors allege that the councilman improperly promoted some business developers with official city declarations, lied to federal agents during an interview, and failed to report the bribe payments on his taxes.
