Union leader John 'Johnny Doc' Dougherty and Philadelphia city councilman Bobby Henon were found guilty of conspiracy and multiple counts of honest services wire fraud in their federal corruption trial on Monday, 11/15. Dougherty was convicted of 8 of 11 charges. Henon was convicted of 10 of 18 charges. They each face up to 20 years in prison. Henon will be sentenced on February 22. Dougherty will be sentenced on February 23. "We're gonna go back and regroup," Dougherty said. "Gonna take my time, meet with my lawyers, meet with my heads of the union and we'll regroup." Dougherty faces a second federal trial on charges that he embezzled more than $600,000 from IBEW Local 98.

A man returning home from Parx Casino was abducted and tied up by three men who threatened and assaulted him while interrogating him about money. It happened aroun 1 a.m. on Sunday morning, 11/14, on the 600 block of Adams Avenue in Philadelphia’s Crescentville section. The 46-year-old man arrived home from the Bensalem casino and just parked his car. While he was walked to his home, three men wearing masks threw him into a U-Haul van and took him to an unknown location. He was tied up in the basement. The men were armed with a handgun and a long gun. They wanted to know where he hid the money in his house. They threatened to kill him. He was punched in the face multiple times. The men ended up taking cash, credit cards, a handgun, sneakers, and keys to the victim's home. The man was dropped off at 9th and Wellens Street in Logan. He alerted police when he got home.

Last month, a New Jersey man was followed home from Parx Casino after winning big money. He was killed. Arrests have been made in that case. The two are unrelated.
