Junction City A former mayor of Junction City has reported to federal prison for taking bribes from a developer.
Michael “Mick” Wunder was sentenced to two years in prison for accepting cash and gifts from developer David Ray Freeman of Lawrence. Freeman later won contracts valued at more than $12 million to develop Junction City housing for troops and families at Fort Riley.
Wunder reported April 13 to a minimum security prison in Duluth, Minn.
Wunder admitted taking the money in a conversation recorded by investigators, but said it was for his wife’s medical bills.
Freeman has pleaded guilty to conspiracy, and testified for prosecutors against Wunder. He will be sentenced Thursday.
