Judge says questions remain on Arredondo charges

A judge is ordering federal prosecutors to address unanswered questions about what exactly is alleged in corruption charges against an Arizona legislator.

The charges of bribery and other crimes accuse Rep. Ben Arredondo of soliciting and accepting sports and charity event tickets from FBI undercover agents and of disclosing confidential information while a Tempe City Council member.

But the Tempe Democrat’s lawyers say it’s not clear from the charges whether any other favors allegedly were involved.

Prosecutors have provided Arredondo’s defense large amounts of information but resisted having to spell out additional details of the charges.

U.S. District Judge Frederick Martone ordered prosecutors to say whether open-ended wording in the indictment warrants more details in the charges.
