Katrina Taylor-Parks, who served as the deputy chief of staff for former Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, will be going to prison.
U.S. District Court Judge Steve Jones sentenced Taylor-Parks to 21 months in federal prison Monday afternoon, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. As the sentenced was announced, she collapsed to the floor.
Taylor-Parks was removed from the courtroom in a wheel chair, Fox 5 reports, and was tended to by medical professionals.
Parks is the fifth person so far to plead guilty in a long-running corruption probe aimed at Reed’s former administration, according to the AJC. She admitted in August she accepted payments from an unidentified vendor that was later awarded $100,000 in city business and plead guilty to accepting $4,000 in bribes.
