The jury has spoken. City Councilmember Bobby Henon has been convicted on nine counts in a federal bribery trial. How much longer will he continue to get his taxpayer-funded paycheck?

After a six-week trial, Henon was convicted Monday on nine counts in a federal bribery trial tied to his work with labor leader John “Johnny Doc” Dougherty. Dougherty, who heads the city’s most powerful labor union, Local 98 of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, and is also head of the Building Trades Council, was convicted on eight counts, including conspiracy and honest services fraud.
