A former Wayne County official has been found guilty in a federal corruption trial.

Zayd Allebban, who was the county's director of enterprise application, was on trial for obstruction of justice and falsifying documents.

Tuesday, jurors found him not-guilty of a count of conspiracy to obstruct justice and a count of obstruction of justice by means of false documents. He was found guilty on two other counts of obstruction of justice by means of false documents.

The 33-year-old was accused of conspiring with his supervisor, Tahir Kazmi, to deliver cash to a contractor to convince the contractor to lie to the FBI about bribes paid to Kazmi.
