A former aide to former Cook County Board President Todd Stroger has been found guilty in his corruption trial.
A federal jury found Eugene Mullins guilty of four counts of bribery and three counts of wire fraud.
The charges stemmed from four contracts Mullins was accused of steering toward acquaintances, then pocketing nearly $35,000 in kickbacks.
Sentencing is scheduled for Dec. 19.
