Democrat Rep. John Conyers’ Wife, Monica Conyers Sentenced to 3 Years in Prison for Bribery after a federal judge refused to toss out her guilty plea.
Conyers wished to withdraw her guilty plea, claiming "badgering" as the reason she submitted the plea in the first place. However, upon reviewing the transcript of the June hearing, U.S. District Judge Avern Cohn concluded Conyers had voluntarily pleaded guilty to conspiracy after denying any coercion.
Conyers had pleaded guilty in a cash which she admitted supporting a Houston company's sludge contract by taking cash. Upon leaving the courtroom, Conyers declared she would appeal and had previously stated, "I'm not going to jail for something I didn't do."
