Juror Received $120K Cash In Bribe Money

Another Minnesota juror has been replaced as the panel deliberates on the fate of seven people accused of misappropriating millions of dollars in federal funds meant to feed children during the pandemic, in what prosecutors say is part of the largest fraud scheme of its kind in the nation. The juror was removed Tuesday after a family member asked them if they were being sequestered because another juror was allegedly offered a bribe of nearly $120,000 in cash over the weekend. That juror was not home Sunday night, the eve of deliberations, when a woman delivered a gift bag full of cash and left it with a relative, according to an FBI search warrant affidavit. The FBI said all seven defendants, their attorneys and the prosecutors had access to that juror’s identifying information. The FBI moved to search the defendants’ cellphones. Feeding Our Future
