RoShawn Winburn, the former director of Dayton’s Minority Business Assistance Center, was sentenced today to six months in prison for a conviction related to a 2019 bribery investigation.
Court documents say Winburn, 46, disclosed business contracts to a local small business owner, who hoped to get contracts with the City of Dayton. The court says that between July 2015 and July 2016, Winburn took cash payments of more than $6,500 in exchange for city documents that were restricted to the public.
Winburn pleaded guilty in February 2020.
Joey Williams, Clayton Luckie, Brian Higgins, Steve Rauch, Joyce Cameron and James Cameron have also been charged in connection to this case. Luckie was sentenced in November 2019 to four months in prison for mail fraud. Williams was sentenced in January 2020 to 12 months in prison; however, he was released in July.
Winburn had faced a maximum sentence of up to 10 years in prison, followed by supervised release of up to three years. He also could have been required to pay restitution and a $100 fine.
