Bell City Manager Pleads Guilty

In October, Rizzo pleaded no contest to 69 counts of fraud, misappropriation of public funds and other charges linked to a brazen corruption scandal that drove his city to the brink of bankruptcy.

Disgraced former Bell city manager Robert Rizzo has agreed to plead guilty to charges that he filed a false federal income tax return to reduce his tax liability, documents filed Thursday show.

The plea agreement indicates that Rizzo, 59, agreed to plead guilty to one count each of conspiracy and filing a false federal income tax return. He could face up to eight years in prison.
