Ted Loza, former D.C. official, released from prison
WASHINGTON (AP) - A former District of Columbia official who pleaded guilty to accepting money in a bribery case involving the city's taxicab industry has been released after spending eight months in prison.
The Federal Bureau of Prisons' website says Ted Loza, the former chief of staff to Council member Jim Graham, was released Monday.
Loza pleaded guilty in February 2011 to two counts of accepting illegal gratuities and one count of making a false statement.
He acknowledged accepting a total of $1,500 in cash from a taxicab industry representative and not reporting the money on a financial disclosure statement.
