, who last week got a prison sentence of over three years.

When the mayor solicited bribes from the school district insurance broker, it was Warney who received the first $5,000 check. It was made payable to his wife with a notation it was for a “cherry bedroom set.” He distributed it to Bencivegno in smaller amounts.

Warney also admitted taking bribes on his own from the same broker’s firm when he was on the school board.
