City Councilman Walter J. (Jake) Egan of Carson was found guilty on a dozen counts of fraud and extortion in connection with a continuing federal probe of California politicians formerly associated with convicted public corruption figure W. Patrick Moriarty. A federal jury in Los Angeles reached its decision after a two-week trial highlighted by Moriarty's testimony for the prosecution that Egan was a "shakedown artist" who had extorted money in exchange for supporting a plan to build a mobile home park at the site of former Carson landfill.
