Smith Convicted of Bribery and Extortion, Will Lose Seat He Recently Won

An Illinois lawmaker will lose his seat… again… and may soon be sitting in a prison cell after his conviction Tuesday on charges of bribery and attempted extortion.


Democratic state Representative Derrick Smith was found guilty by a federal jury in Chicago, after just a few hours of deliberations.


He had been charged with accepting a $7,000 bribe to help steer a state grant to a day care center… but the bribe was really part of an FBI sting operation.


Smith had been kicked out of the House after he was indicted, but was already on the ballot and won election back to that seat.


No sentencing date for Smith has yet been set.
