Report: Smith Admitted to FBI He Accepted Bribe Money as State Representative


State representative Derrick Smith reportedly admitted to FBI agents that he had accepted bribe money and even turned some of the cash back over to authorities, hours after his 2012 arrest on corruption charges.

 

The information is contained in court documents filed in Smith’s upcoming bribery trial. Smith reportedly told agents that he had screwed up in taking the money in exchange for trying to intervene in a state grant award.

 

Prosecutors want to use Smith’s statements against him at trial… while defense lawyers are trying to keep those statements away from the jury.
