Wayne County worker pleads guilty to taking bribes from city contractor
A man who was in charge of Wayne County government's computer system has pleaded guilty to taking bribes from a contractor.
Tahir Kazmi told a federal judge Thursday that he took cash and trips to Hawaii, Turkey and Florida, all worth $70,000.
The contractor wasn't named but had multimillion-dollar technology deals with Wayne County.
Kazmi admits he obstructed justice during the FBI investigation, a factor that will raise his sentencing guidelines.
The Rochester Hills resident was the county's chief information officer.
He'll cooperate with the ongoing investigation of corruption in county government.
