Former assistant Wayne County executive Michael Grundy has been indicted on extortion and other charges.
Grundy is accused of receiving kickbacks and conspiring to steal more than $1 million from HealthChoice of Michigan, also called Wayne County HealthChoice, while he was the executive director.
The final count of the indictment alleges that Grundy conspired to obstruct justice by attempting to mislead federal investigators after subpoenas were served on Wayne County on October 19, 2011.
He was fired from his county office in November.
If convicted, Grundy could spend up to 20 years in prison.
