Ex-DWP Executive Expected to Plead Guilty in Corruption Case

A former top executive of the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power is expected to plead guilty Tuesday to a federal bribery charge stemming from the probe of the city’s handling of the botched launch of a DWP billing system.

David H. Wright, 62, of Riverside, accepted bribes from a lawyer in exchange for supporting a $30 million, no-bid DWP contract, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Wright admitted in his plea agreement that he accepted kickbacks and participated in “corrupt schemes” while leading the municipal utility.
