Grand Jury Hears Witnesses In Barlow Case
A corruption investigation continues into Las Vegas City Councilman Ricki Barlow.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports a federal grand jury has heard testimony from witnesses into the investigation that has now lasted nearly three years.
The investigation has focused on allegations that the councilman received kickbacks from campaign funds he steered to consultants.
Barlow confirmed the criminal investigation in September 2016. At that time agents assigned to the FBI’s public corruption team in Las Vegas raided Barlow’s home and issued subpoenas for financial records.
It’s still unclear how many witnesses have testified or whether federal prosecutors might be close to filing charges against Barlow.
