Former Commerce Councilman Sentenced

By EGP News Report

Former Commerce city councilman Robert Fierro will serve five years probation, and has been ordered to pay a total $3,100 following a May 15 sentencing hearing before U.S. District Judge Philip S. Gutierrez.

Fierro resigned from his city council seat soon after he pleaded guilty to a federal conspiracy charge in February. He admitted to trying to get witnesses to make false statements to hide his role in an illegal campaign finance scheme under investigation by a federal grand jury.

Fierro’s sister in law Ana Perez also pleaded guilty to a related conspiracy charge and is scheduled for her own sentencing on June 18. His wife Linda Fierro is awaiting a trial, but no date was set.
