Grand jury indicts Gwinnett County commissioner

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga.  - A grand jury has indicted a Gwinnett County commissioner on charges of bribery and failing to disclose a financial interest in properties up for rezoning.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that a judge unsealed the indictment against Kevin Kenerly during a court hearing Wednesday.

Kenerly and his lawyer Walt Britt attended the hearing but declined to comment on the indictment, saying they hadn't seen it.

Kenerly faces one count of bribery and two counts of failing to disclose a financial interest in relation to his alleged dealings with a developer who owned property considered for rezoning.

The indictment is the latest development in an investigation that contributed to the resignation of commission chairman Charles Bannister.
