RENO, Nev. (AP) - A Hollywood associate of Joe Francis will be
sentenced in Reno for his role in the bribery of jail guards to
help the Girls Gone Wild founder while he was being held on tax
evasion charges in 2007.
Aaron Weinstein originally faced a bribery charge but agreed to
plead guilty to a lesser charge of providing contraband in prison.
A federal jury earlier acquitted one former Washoe County deputy, Michon Mills, of bribery charges after she was accused of accepting nearly $10,000 in gifts from Weinstein.
Another ex-deputy, Ralph Hawkins, was sentenced in December to
three years probation and fined $4,000 for accepting cash and
tickets to Raiders games from Weinstein.
The sentencing is set for later Monday.
