LOS ANGELES – A former Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputy was charged last month for agreeing to accept $20,000 in bribes in exchange for smuggling contraband into the Men’s Central Jail in Los Angeles.

Gilbert Michel, 38, was charged with one count of bribery of a public official. In a plea agreement Michel agreed to plead guilty to the charge and to cooperate in an ongoing investigation.

Michel, who resigned from the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department in September 2011, was assigned to the Men’s Central Jail in downtown Los Angeles. And as a deputy sheriff, he was responsible for the care, custody and security of inmates housed at the jail.

In the plea agreement, Michel admits that he agreed to accept $20,000 in cash in exchange for smuggling contraband into the jail for delivery to an inmate. The contraband included a cell phone, cigarettes and a note.

The charge of bribery of a public official carries a statutory maximum penalty of 10 years in federal prison.
