Longtime Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price was arrested Friday and charged with taking $950,000 in bribes in what prosecutors say was a scheme to use his position on the commissioner’s court to enrich himself.
A 13-count indictment unsealed Friday names Price, his longtime chief of staff Dapheny Elaine Fain and two political consultants, Kathy Louise Nealy and Christian Lloyd Campbell.
Price and Nealy are accused of conspiracy to commit bribery, mail fraud and tax evasion. Campbell is accused of participating in the conspiracy.
Price and Fain are accused of running a business that provided Price with another $133,000 that was never reported on income taxes.
In total, Price is accused of receiving around $1,150,000 in bribes and other taxable income from several sources that was concealed or disguised, according to the indictment.
