The city’s former director of information technology services was sentenced to 20 months in federal prison Tuesday for accepting more than $29,500 in bribes.
Charles Dodd, 48, of Canton Township, received the bribes from two information technology companies that provided services and personnel to the city.
U.S. District Judge Robert Cleland sentenced Dodd two years after the former city official struck a plea deal with federal prosecutors.
Dodd, who had worked for the city since December 2007, resigned in September 2016.
