Former Ho-Chunk legislator gets five years in prison for bribery scheme

(WEAU) - A former Ho-Chunk legislator will spend five years in prison after pleading guilty to bribery.

Clarence Pettibone, 53, of Black River Falls was convicted of a bribery scheme, which ran from 2002 to 2009. The prosecutors say the scheme generated $3,000,000 paid by clients from funds they received from the Ho-Chunk Nation.

They say he supported a financial group for a $250,000 housing study in exchange for a Pontiac Firebird.
