Two Former Levy County Commissioners Guilty of Bribery Charges
Two suspended Levy County commissioners have been found guilty of federal bribery charges for approving of what they believed was a new development project.
Published reports say the federal jury found 63-year-old William Yearty and Robert "Tony" Parker guilty Friday of conspiring and soliciting bribes and offering their approval for developments in exchange for money or other incentives.
Yearty was also charged with making false statements to a federal agent.
A video tape played at the trial showed the two officials making a deal with an FBI agent posing as a principal in a fictitious company.
They were arrested in November 2008.
Yearty and Parker are free until their April sentencing.
