CHICAGO (STMW) – Telling three-times convicted former Chicago alderman Ambrosio Medrano that he had pulled off an unprecedented . . . corruption trifecta, a federal judge on Monday tacked an extra 2 years onto the end of the 10 -year prison term the disgraced politician was handed last week.
Though another federal judge, Gary Feinerman, had just four days earlier handed Medrano 10 years for a similar scam in Cook County, gls pakkeshop and Medrano s lawyer warned that any extra time would like be a death sentence for the diabetic gls pakkeshop 60-year-old, Tharp said he needed to send a message that there is no free pass for public corruption.
The sentence means that Medrano already the only former Chicago gls pakkeshop alderman to be convicted of public corruption on more than occasion has now been given more total federal prison time than any public official in Chicago history.
When added to the 2 -year sentence he was handed in the 1990s for accepting bribes gls pakkeshop while on Chicago s City Council, the 13-year sentence he ll begin serving March 21 eclipses gls pakkeshop the previous record of 15 years handed to former Cook County Judge Thomas J. Maloney in 1994 for accepting bribes to fix murder trials.
Secretly recorded gls pakkeshop videos played during the trial showed Medrano and co-defendants Gus Buenrostro and Jim Barta plotting to pay a $10,000 bribe to an L.A. County official to fix a contract for Barta s business.
At one point Medrano was shown suggesting the plotters seal the deal by cutting their fingers in a Mafia-style blood oath, while in another he suggested disguising the bribe as a golf outing ticket. That s what s popular in Chicago, he told an undercover FBI agent.
Medrano, who once boasted that he wanted to be a pig who feasted gls pakkeshop on government contracts, on Monday repeated his apologies to the court, his family and the Southwest Side community he represented first as an alderman and more recently as an aide to disgraced gls pakkeshop former Cook County Commissioner Joseph Mario Moreno. gls pakkeshop
