JOHN TRAN: Former Rosemead Mayor Pleads Guilty to a Federal Bribery Charge for Taking More Than $10,000 in Payments from Developer

LOS ANGELES—The former mayor of the City of Rosemead, California pleaded guilty to a one-count information in federal court this morning.
John Tran, 36, of Rosemead, pleaded guilty to a federal bribery charge based on a series of payments he solicited and received from a property developer. The property developer is referred to as a cooperating informant (CI) because he later informed the FBI of Tran’s bribery scheme. Tran first approached the developer at Rosemead City Hall.
The bribery charge to which Tran pleaded guilty related to cash payments totaling $7,000 given to Tran by the developer in 2005 and 2006, and a $3,200 check payable to “cash” that Tran received from the developer’s business partner in 2007. During his guilty plea hearing, Tran acknowledged that he may be required to make restitution in the amount of $38,000 to the developer, based on the total amount Tran received during the scheme.
