CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Court records reveal that ex-Charlotte mayor Patrick Cannon could be sentenced as early as next week on federal corruption charges. That’s according to a pre-sentencing report filed Tuesday. Most of the document’s contents are sealed but WCCB learned Cannon could be sentenced on or after September 3.
Cannon admitted he accepted bribes and pleaded guilty in federal court back in June.
Arrested in March, Cannon became the first mayor in Charlotte history to be arrested on public corruption charges.
