More Temple City indictments coming

The hammer is about to drop on a trio of Temple City pols accused of soliciting bribes from a developer, the Pasadena Star-News reports. Mayor Judy Wong, former mayor Cath Wilson and former council candidate Scott Carwile are expected in court tomorrow, when prosecutors will unseal a grand jury indicment against them.

The indictments were supposed to be announced yesterday, but the court delayed a couple days when Carwile, who ran unsuccessfully for the state Assembly in 2006, showed up without an attorney.

Temple City has already lost one councilman in the bribery scandal. Last week, Councilman David Capra was forced to resign after he pleaded guilty to a charge of failing to report a campaign contribution.
