BELL (CBS) — A former assistant city manager of the Southern California city of Bell is free on bail three days after she was arrested in a corruption probe.

Spaccia Bails Out Of Jail: KNX 1070’s Claudia Peschiutta Reports

Police say Angela Spaccia was released Friday night from the Century Regional Detention Facility on a $350,000 bond.

Spaccia was charged with four felony counts of misappropriation of public funds.

In a related development, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor rejected a defense bid Friday to lift a hold on former Bell City Manager Robert Rizzo’s $2 million bail. The judge said there was not sufficient collateral to ensure Rizzo’s presence in court.

Spaccia, 52, and Rizzo, 56, were among the eight current and former Bell officials arrested Tuesday and charged with misappropriating more than $5.5 million in public funds.

Three others were released from jail after appearing in court Wednesday.

    All Eight are Democrats! Hmm, imagine if one was a Republican let alone eight. Would the Liberal Media mention that info? Of course they would. Don’t believe the Liberal Media – they’re corrupt and need to push their warped agenda.

    Beside long jail sentences, in my opinion, the Court should send them all to Community Services, like sweeping the streets of Bell or serving food to the Poor residents of Bell to teach them all a lesson or 2 about honesty and civic duties of public servants.
