Redflex CEO Sentenced For Chicago Traffic Camera Bribery Scandal

The former chief executive of the Redflex camera company has been sentenced to 2  1/2 years in prison for a bribery scheme to secure 124 million dollars in city of Chicago contracts. 57-year-old Karen Finley must also pay 35 thousand dollars restitution. Her sentence will run concurrently with a 14-month term she was given last month for a similar scheme to bribe current and former Columbus elected officials to obtain and maintain a municipal contract.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
