The Temple City Tribune spoke with Deputy District Attorney Max Huntsman Thursday for confirmation of a story that appeared on a local newspaper’s web site that said the DA was seeking a minimum of two years jail time for Cathe Wilson and Judy Wong.
What Deputy DA Max Huntsman actually said was he believes “this is a prison case”…he went on to add that
it could mean a minimum of two years in state prison, but was not specifically asking for that.
Temple City Mayor Cathe Wilson and Councilwoman Judy Wong, who are accused of accepting bribes and perjury.
Deputy District Attorney Max Huntsman also said. “There was an incident, something that occurred after the investigation began, that we’re looking into,” “Something interesting happened that I think could be important as evidence.”
Wilson and Wong are facing a possibility of up to 9-10 years in prison if given the maximum sentence.
Huntsman also said that if they were to plead early then the minimum charge is more appropriate than the longer sentence.
Judge Patricia Schnegg issued a bench warrant for a Bank of America official who did not show up for the hearing. However that individual is cooperating with the District Attorney’s office.
