The Region : Rosemead Official Confesses to Bribery

September 11, 1986

Rosemead City Councilman Louis Tury Jr., one of 19 former defense-industry purchasing agents and suppliers indicted in July on bribery and kickback charges, has pleaded guilty to paying $20,000 to a Teledyne Camera Systems Inc. vice president in exchange for subcontracts for his machine shop. Tury, 47, owner of Tury Precision Machinery, will also give up the council seat that he has held since 1978 "reasonably soon," he said. State law prohibits people convicted of felonies from holding office. Tury will be sentenced in federal court Oct. 14 and could receive up to two years in prison and a $11,000 fine.
