Former Compton mayor due back in court this month
Thirteen years ago, on February 27, 2003, members of the Compton city council were all charged with crimes related to the misues of public money. On February 25th, only one will be brought back to Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal Justice Center for a pre-trial conference.

I have discovered that there are two cases pending against Omar Bradley – BA240392 and TA129869.
In BA240392, he is being retried on the two original charges that were overturned: two counts of theft of public funds.
In TA129869, an additional charge of Government Code 1090, conflict of interest, was filed on 2/24/2013. A preliminary hearing has not been set on that charge. The next court date is 2/25/2016 in Department 107 to set a date for his preliminary hearing on that single charge. The retrial will not begin until after the preliminary hearing is completed because we anticipate that the two cases will be combined.
Also, Bradley is the only one of the three convicted being retried. The Court of Appeal affirmed the convictions of the other two defendants. Defendants Zurita and Arceneaux were found not guilty.
