Fox News reported [2]┬áthe plea deal meant Gray would have to plea guilty to a single felony count, but Gray’s team was determined that he would not face any charges if he would plead guilty.

After rejecting the deal, the federal prosecution team has re-interviewed witnesses to shore up their case before a grand jury.

Yet another corrupt Democratic mayor, following in the footsteps of Detroit’s jailed ex-mayor Kwame Kilpatrick and New Orleans’ Ray Nagin [3].
