Former Teamsters trustee pleads guilty in bribery case

DETROIT (WKZO) -- A former Teamsters trustee could face time in prison after pleading guilty to bribery charges Monday.

Sixty-nine-year-old Michael Townsend was indicted by a federal grand jury in June on conspiracy and bribery charges.  Federal prosecutors claim Townsend took bribes worth about 18-thousand dollars from a Detroit produce company as part of a plan to make it appear that the company had been unionized, when its employees were not under representation of the Teamsters.

Townsend faces up to five years in prison and a 250-thousand dollar fine when he is sentenced March 24th.
