While Cannon dodged jail for now, his appearance in court continued a 366-day free-fall for one of the citys longest-serving officials, who first joined the City Council in 1993.
On Nov. 6, 2013, Cannon was elected mayor, jubilantly thanking voters for helping him realize a life goal.
He was arrested in March, charged with accepting more than $50,000 in bribes from undercover FBI agents. He pleaded guilty in June to a corruption charge and was sentenced by Whitney on Oct. 14. At the time, Cannons attorneys asked that their client be admitted to a prison alcohol-treatment program.

A double felon. I bet he runs again.
“A double felon. I bet he runs again”.
Yep. he should run for congress he just enhanced his CV.
Quite possibly so, if he has a majority constituency the likes of Marion Berry’s.
Note to lowlife scumbag vile slimey registered Democrats...we are watching you!
Patrick Cannons new prison home can be found in the mountains on the edge of a West Virginia college town. The first winner of Survivor served a three-year sentence there. The showers have curtains, and the black market currency is packets of Chicken of the Sea tuna and mackerel. Welcome to FCI Morgantown. The warden is Anne Mary Carter. Her 45-year-old minimum security prison holds about 1,200 male inmates, ranging from financial criminals to prescription drug dealers, to corrupt public officials. On Nov. 18, shell add inmate 29396-058, Charlottes former mayor.
Plus, his lawyer is arguing he has an alcohol problem.
This is smart on his and his attorney's part, because if he eventually does actually go to Federal Prison, they will let you out early if you complete one of those programs (drug addiction, alcohol, anger management, etc).
Many Federal prisoners with smart attorneys argue they are drug addicts or alcoholics, even if they are not - just so they can get admitted to these programs and then secure an early release. It is done every single day in this country.
“Michael Gordon, Steve Harrison, Rick Rothacker”
It took three Charlotte Observer reporters to write this dribble?
Sadly, first thought that he was Amish was correct. It’s always the Amish. It shouldn’t be, but it is. You know this can’t have been his first bribe and take.
Not one of those reporters called him by his nickname: Cash Cannon
The bigger and more perverted and heinous the criminals, the greater their chances are to elevation within the democrat party.
Think this bozo is done, eh?
If Obama hadn’t been cloned in a fish farm, he could be his brother.
