A former Duluth developer's federal bribery case is now over -- but a new case for someone else is still possible in Gwinnett County.
Mark Gary, 40, received a two-year federal prison sentence Tuesday (Aug. 27) in connection with a bribery scheme that involved former Gwinnett Commissioner Shirley Lasseter. And Gary's cooperation with prosecutors has implications for the ongoing Gwinnett corruption probe.
Gary confessed to paying a bribe in exchange for Lasseter's vote for a waste transfer station in which Gary had a personal stake. Gary also received three years of supervised release as part of his sentence.
Since being implicated, Gary has been cooperating with federal prosecutors. And a report says that another indictment may be coming.
"I do expect there to be at least one other individual charged as a result of Mark Gary’s cooperation,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Doug Gilfillan told Judge Charles Pannell Jr. at Gary's sentencing, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
