Star Tribune :Zimmermann convicted in federal bribery case

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.
