10. FL: Frequent Hialeah candidate convicted of election fraud
Nilo Juri, a frequent Hialeah political candidate and former state lawmaker, was convicted Wednesday by a Miami-Dade jury on charges that he used illegal contributions to boost the campaigns of his political allies.

After an eight-day trial, the jury convicted Juri of nine felonies and four misdemeanors in a scheme using straw donors to steer money to candidates running for the Hialeah City Council and the Miami-Dade County Commission in 2003 and 2004. Juri repaid the donors -- among them his daughter and son-in-law -- bypassing the legal limits on donations to candidates.

Juri, 59, was also convicted of coaching two witnesses to lie to investigators. Prosecutors said Juri could face at least 17 months in prison.
