Ben Arredondo

Longtime Tempe politician Ben Arredondo is expected to plead guilty to federal charges Friday morning.

Arredondo, a Democrat, currently serves in the state House of Representatives and is a former Tempe City Council member. He was indicted May 16 and later pleaded not guilty to bribery, mail-fraud, lying and extortion charges stemming from an FBI sting that took place between February 2009, when Arredondo was a Tempe councilman, and November 2010, shortly after he won the House seat. The longtime GOP politico switched parties prior to winning the legislative seat.
