July 11, 1986

Carson City Councilman Walter J. (Jake) Egan was found guilty today by a federal jury in Los Angeles on 12 counts of mail fraud and extortion for accepting illegal contributions from convicted political corruption figure W. Patrick Moriarty in exchange for support of a mobile home project.

Egan, who faces sentencing Sept. 8, said after the verdict that he will consult with Carson officials on whether to resign from his office. He was the 11th defendant indicted in a widespread corruption probe linked to Moriarty's political and business activities.
