LOS ANGELES (AP) — Five former elected officials of the tiny California city of Bell have been convicted of multiple counts of misappropriation of public funds and a sixth defendant has been cleared entirely.

The lengthy verdicts were read Wednesday in Los Angeles Superior Court.

Former Mayor Oscar Hernandez and co-defendants Teresa Jacobo,, George Mirabal, George Cole and Victor Belo were all convicted of multiple counts and acquitted of others.

Former Councilman Luis Artiga was found not guilty of a dozen allegations.
