Under the guilty plea, 65-year-old Dessie Nelson of Oakland, Calif., admitted that she received a shopping bag filled with $35,000 in cash, an envelope stuffed with $10,000 in cash and a $7,000 Caribbean cruise. She also pleaded guilty to tax evasion.
Nelson is scheduled to be sentenced June 16.
The bribes came from Holiday International Security founder Michael Holiday, a Silver Spring resident and former Montgomery County police officer. Holiday pleaded guilty in October to bribery, tax evasion and transportation of child pornography.
