Austin tech exec guilty of lying to FBI about alleged John Wiley Price bribe

A former tech executive, Helena Tantillo, was convicted of lying to the FBI in a case related to the John Wiley Price corruption investigation.

Prosecutors said Tantillo funneled money to County Commissioner Price's campaign manager to gain favor for a lucrative county contract.

Tantillo claimed the money went through her ex-boyfriend, Christian Campbell -- who has already pleaded guilty in connection with the corruption case.

Campbell is expected to be a government witness against Price.

The commissioner and two associates are charged with accepting nearly $1 million in bribes. All three have denied the allegations.
