The first shoe has dropped in the Prince George’s alcohol bribery scandal.
Former Prince George’s Delegate and County Councilman Will Campos has pleaded guilty to bribery charges, federal prosecutors announced today.
Former Maryland State Del. and Prince George’s Councilman William A. Campos has pleaded guilty to accepting bribes in exchange for official favors, federal prosecutors announced Tuesday. “
This undercover investigation did not involve an isolated instance of misconduct,” said Maryland U.S. attorney Rod J. Rosenstein. “It exposed a long-standing practice of giving away taxpayer money in exchange for bribes. This type of corruption can flourish when government officials exercise discretion without oversight.”
Campos, 42, of Hyattsville, pleaded guilty to bribery and conspiracy on Jan. 5 and the plea was unsealed Tuesday.
Sentencing is scheduled for April 10. Campos faces up to 15 years in prison.
