LOS ANGELES (AP) – Former Compton Mayor Omar Bradley who was sentenced to three years in prison for misappropriating public funds is serving his time in a halfway house. Bradley was convicted in February of using city-issued credit cards to pay expenses such as golf shoes, clothing, in-room movies and tooth repair.

Officials said Thursday that Bradley has been sent to Volunteers of America, a restitution house.

Terry Bork, who prosecuted Bradley, was surprised to hear where Bradley was assigned.

Superior Court Judge Jack Morgan did not order Bradley to repay Compton the $19,000 the district attorney’s office believes he owed. Morgan had ordered a $200 restitution fine that is required by law and goes to a state fund for victim expenses.

Bradley’s attorney, Ben Pesta, said he believes his client owes $1,700 and that serving time behind bars would be too harsh for the crime.

A spokesman for the California Department of Corrections said there was nothing unusual about Bradley’s assignment.

Bradley met criteria that allows him to stay at the 50-bed, minimum-security facility, spokesman George Kostyrko said. Few prison inmates enter the program because they cannot be repeat offenders or be convicted of a violent crime.

Bradley, 45, is allowed to leave the facility five days a week to work for a job-training program in Carson for the developmentally disabled. He can see visitors but cannot have a vehicle, said Volunteers for America spokesman Jim Howat.

Bradley, former City Councilman Amen Rahh and former City Manager John D. Johnson were charged with two counts each of misusing public funds from 1999 to 2001. Prosecutors alleged that the three used city-issued credit cards as “personal piggy banks” and double billed travel expenses to Compton, known as the birthplace of “gangsta rap.”

Bradley received a three-year sentence but will be released in August 2005 because he served jail time while awaiting trial.

Johnson also was sentenced to three years in prison and Rahh was ordered to perform 250 days’ community service.
