Seven People Indicted in Corruption Sting


A one-time campaign treasurer for former state Senator Rickey Hendon is one of seven people charged in a government corruption sting.

 

A federal indictment accuses Dean Nichols and six others of attempting to pay $5,000 bribes in order to land $25,000 federal grants.

 

But the grants did not exist, and the purported federal official who claimed to be arranging the deal was actually an FBI agent.

 

Hendon, who resigned from the legislature last year without explanation, was not mentioned in the indictment.
