Former Chicago alderman Ambrosio Medrano was sentenced to 2 and a half years in prison today for his role in a bribery scheme involving a mail order pharmaceutical contract with Cook County hospitals.
This is in addition to the 10 and a half years he was sentenced to on Friday for taking part in a different bribery scheme with former Cook County commissioner Joseph Mario Moreno to secure a bandage contract at Stroger Hospital.
Medrano is no stranger to political corruption.
In the 1990’s he was one of six Chicago aldermen to go down in “Operation Silver Shovel.”
