Rep. John Conyers’ Wife Sentenced to Three Years in Prison

Monica Conyers was sentenced to just over three years in prison for accepting at least $69,000 in bribes she solicited from various parties, including Synagro, who bought her votes or other forms of advocacy. But Conyers isn’t happy with the lax sentence and now says she wants to withdraw her plea, but the judge won’t let her. So, she’s appealing.

While Mrs. Conyers will do time in the slammer, her husband–who reversed his positions on contracts in Detroit after she accepted the bribes and intervened on behalf of the bribers–isn’t touched by this scandal.
