Monday, July 18, 2005 | The jury deliberating federal corruption charges against City Councilmen Michael Zucchet and Ralph Inzunza will announce the verdict at 11:30 a.m., it was announced this morning.

The jury will also announce its decision on charges against strip club lobbyist Lance Malone and council aide David Cowan.

Federal prosecutors say the four defendants were involved in an alleged scheme in which the council members received clandestine campaign contributions and cash in exchange for their efforts to repeal a law forbidding touching between patrons and strippers.
