Riverside, CA

Defendants in the Palm Springs corruption case, former Palm Springs Mayor Steve Pougnet and developers Richard Meaney and John Wessman, were set to be arraigned last Friday. However, the presiding judge moved the joint arraignment to June 30. 

The three men all face felony charges related to an alleged $375,000 bribery scheme. Pougnet is charged with 21 counts, ranging from corruption by a public official to perjury. Meaney and Wessman were each charged with nine counts of bribery and one count of conspiracy. None of the defendants entered pleas on Friday.
