Miami Lakes Suspended Mayor Heads To Trial

Suspended Miami Lakes mayor Michael Pizzi is expected to be in federal court in Miami Tuesday morning.

 

Jury selection is scheduled to get underway in the federal corruption case against Pizzi.

 

Pizzi is charged with fraud after an FBI sting operation allegedly caught him accepting thousands of dollars in bribes in exchange for his political support of certain federal grant applications.

 

Pizzi has maintained his innocence since his arrest in 2013 and has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
