Plea hearing in D.C. bribery case

By Del Quentin Wilber

A plea hearing has been scheduled for Friday afternoon in the corruption case against Ted G. Loza, a former top D.C. Council staffer accused of accepting bribes, according to court officials.

Loza was indicted in 2009 on charges of accepting bribes and free trips from an undercover FBI informant in exchange for pushing legislation that would benefit the taxi industry. Loza, the chief of staff to Jim Graham (D-Ward 1), has steadfastly denied wrong-doing since his arrest in September 2009.

The hearing is scheduled for 3 p.m. before Judge Paul L. Friedman in the District's federal court.
