DALLAS (AP) — Former Dallas Mayor Pro Tem Don Hill and two others convicted of bribery and extortion are set to be sentenced as part of a City Hall corruption investigation.
U.S. District Judge Barbara Lynn is set Friday to preside over the sentencing of Hill; his wife, Sheila Farrington Hill; and D'Angelo Lee, his appointee to the Dallas Plan Commission.
The three were convicted last year.
The Dallas Morning News reports that Don Hill and Lee face a maximum of 95 years in prison for coordinating a scheme to shake down developers for hundreds of thousands of dollars in return for votes on their low-income housing projects in southern Dallas.
Farrington could get up to 65 years for helping launder hundreds of thousands of dollars from the scheme.
