The political bribery case in Sudbury is starting to move through the courts. Gerry Lougheed Junior who faces bribery-related charges is back in court December 1st for a judicial pre-trial.

It’s alleged Lougheed bribed a Liberal with a job or appointment in return for not seeking the nomination in a Sudbury by-election. Former candidate, Andrew Olivier had recordings of his conversation with Lougheed which prompted an OPP investigation into the alleged bribe.
