October 29, 2009|Times Wire Reports

A federal jury convicted Birmingham Mayor Larry Langford of accepting bribes in exchange for funneling $7.1 million in bond business to a prominent investment banker.

As a convicted felon, Langford, 63, was automatically removed from the office he won in a landslide in 2007.

He was free on bond pending sentencing, which was to be in about three months.
