SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — San Francisco prosecutors have charged three people in a public corruption case that accuses them of accepting $20,000 in bribes from an undercover FBI agent.

District Attorney George Gascon announced the charges Friday against political consultant Keith Jackson, former city commissioner Nazly Mohajer and former city employee Zula Jones.

Gascon alleges the three promised political access and preference in winning city contracts in exchange for the money.

He declined to release additional details about the allegations.

Jackson pleaded guilty to a racketeering charge last year as part of a federal probe that also ensnared state Sen. Leland Yee and Chinatown gangster Raymond “Shrimp Boy” Chow.

Chow’s attorneys said the FBI alleged that Jones and Mohajer solicited bribes for San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee. Lee has denied the allegations.

It was not clear whether Jackson, Jones and Mohajer had attorneys.
