DALLAS -- Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price went to work Monday morning, but likely with more on his mind than a typical day.

Price refused to speak to News 8 as he walked from his car into his office. On Friday he pleaded 'not guilty' in federal court and adamantly claimed his innocence after the 106-page federal indictment was released.

The indictment outlines a web of mail fraud, tax fraud and bribery with the help of three associates: Daphney Fain, Price's top assistant, political consultant Kathy Nealy, and consultant Christian Lloyd Campbell.

All, including Price, are free on bond and maintaining their innocence.

It could be more than a year from now before there's a trial. Price faces up to 30 years in prison if convicted.

News 8 spoke with Price's two attorneys on Monday. Neither would say much, but Billy Ravkind did say the allegations are 'nonsense' and he can easily disprove them in court.
