Former Cleveland Ward 8 Councilwoman Sabra Pierce Scott, who was Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson's 2009 reelection campaign manager, pleaded guilty yesterday in federal district court to conspiracy to commit bribery and has agreed to testify against others as part of an ongoing corruption probe of City Hall operatives.

Pierce Scott, 52, who abruptly resigned in 2009 and is now pursuing a master's degree at Case Western Reserve University, is the first Black elected Cleveland official to be charged. She joins a long list of more than 50 countywide officials and their affiliates that have either pleaded guilty or been convicted of corruption- related crimes in office in connection with a neverending FBI investigation made public three years ago.

She appeared before Federal District Court Judge Christopher Boyko in Cleveland and after admitting guilt, she left the courtroom flanked by her attorney. To read this article further go to:
