They got him! John Ford was convicted of accepting bribes. I remember my first ever post and the heat I took for making the allegation that he might be dirty. Little did I know what the future would hold and that I would be proven right a few months later.
Now for the big questions. Will he roll over to get a reduced sentence? Will some of the others awaiting trial take a slightly better offer and accept a guilty plea instead of going to trial because the inevitable is now looking them dead in the eye? I would bet the offers to do so just got a little less sweet.
Maybe Jr. can put in a good word for him before he gets sentenced.
