Synagro Scandal, Second Conviction in Tainted Sludge Contract

Earlier today, Detroit businessman Rayford Jackson pleaded guilty in federal court to paying more than $6,000 in bribes to an unnamed Detroit City Council member in order to influence the award a contract to Synagro. Below is a copy of the charges that were filed against Mr. Jackson in May, and recently unsealed. A copy of Mr. Jackson's plea agreement is here.

In January, DWSD formally terminated its contract with Synagro following the conviction of James Rosendall.
