Special Section: San Bernardino Corruption Probe
San Bernardino County Supervisor Neil Derry pleaded guilty Tuesday to a misdemeanor charge of failing to report a campaign contribution in a deal that will spare him from jail time and won’t affect his ability to stay in office.
Superior Court Judge Michael Dest dismissed the two more serious felony charges of perjury and filing a false report against Derry and ordered him to pay a $5,000 fine to the California Fair Political Practices Commission and about $5,000 in court fines and penalties.
