Don and Shelia Hill to prison in Dallas City Hall corruption case

Former Dallas City Councilman Don Hill, his wife Shelia (pictured), and two other defendants in the Dallas City Hall corruption case report to federal prison today.

The soft-pedaled report at the link below not only failed to report their political party affiliation, it left out their prison sentences.

They are both Democrats. Don Hill was sentenced to 18 years in prison and Shelia was sentenced to 9 years in prison.

SMU political scientist Cal Jillson says the high profile trial, and long prison terms, should not be considered an end to questionable behavior in local politics.
