The longtime Montebello (CD 14 East) Calderon Political Family is reeling after brothers Ron and Tom are Indicted on multiple counts of Corruption. We ponder what a certain "Los Angeles City Councilman", "two Los Angeles Public Officials" and a future "State Senate President" (as noted in leaked FBI Affidavit), may have to say about today's announcement?
State Senator Ron Calderon: "My Indictment is this Long".
California State Senator Ronald Calderon and his brother former Assemblyman Thomas Calderon have been indicted on at least 31-felony counts it was announced on Friday by Federal investigators.
The indictments were confirmed in a noon time press conference by US Attorney Andre Birotte in Los Angeles.
Senator Ronald Calderon has agreed to surrender to federal authorizes on Monday, and his brother Ton Calderon was taken into custody on Friday.
Ron Calderon faces 24 charges including bribery, money laundering and tax fraud, which carry a maximum sentence of 400 years in prison, Birotte told reporters. The senator who represents a wide swatch of Southeast Los Angeles County agreed to surrender to authorities on Monday, Birotte said.
Birotte also said that former Assemblyman Tom Calderon faces seven counts of money laundering and is scheduled to be arraigned this afternoon.
