Jury Finds Zimmermann Guilty on First 3 Counts

Randy Furst filed this report minutes after the verdict.

Zimmermann, who represented the city's sixth ward from 2001 to 2005, was charged in a federal indictment with four counts, three involving allegations that he took $7,200 in cash bribes from a property developer, Gary A. Carlson. He was convicted on three of the charges.

The last count that was dismissed was about the retaining wall.

We'll have more of Liz McLemore's detailed notes from the trial and hopefully, some excepts from the FBI videos at Minneapolis Confidential.

While we wait for the release of those videos... a look back (and forward) by Loosetrife at Mpls Upside Down.
