Guilty Detroit Metro airport boss gasps at verdict in $5M bribery case

Detroit A former Detroit Metropolitan Airport official faces the longest corruption crime sentence in U.S. history after being convicted Wednesday of receiving more than $5 million worth of bribes.

James Warner, 52, of Commerce Township, gasped and arched his eyebrows as the jury forewoman said "guilty" 10 times for charges that included bribery, theft and money laundering conspiracies, and obstruction of justice, a charge that carries a possible 20-year prison sentence.

Warner could be sentenced to more than 30 years in federal prison. The sentence would eclipse the current record, a 28-year federal prison sentence being served by former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick.

Warner will be sentenced Oct. 8 by U.S. District Judge Victoria Roberts.

1. Good. Perhaps the public is seeing through all of the corruption that rump and his ilk...

have been allowing and/or sponsoring (indirectly by not going after these types of crimes as aggressively in past times), and is starting to nail these corrupt idiots to the wall...

2. I guarantee you there's a whole lot of corruption going on in Macomb County...

that hasn't been looked into either. I heard a "rumor" about a guy in my neighborhood who hasn't paid his property taxes for years and nothing has happened to him. He brags about it saying he "knows people in county government" so he doesn't worry about it. He drives around in his big ass pickup truck covered with Trump stickers.

Need I say more?
