Three southwest Virginia businessmen and a federal employee have pleaded guilty for their roles in a bribery scheme.
The pleas were entered in Abingdon federal court yesterday as a result of Operation Coon Dog.
The investigation cracked open a scheme, in which contractors paid Buchanan County officials bribes to win flood cleanup contracts.
Prosecutors say bribes included cash and gifts-- such as coon dogs, trucks, clothes and tickets to major sporting events.
Sixteen men were charged in connection with the bribery.
Seven are scheduled to stand trial in April.
Nine have pleaded guilty.
``Pete'' Stiltner Junior, chairman of the Buchanan Board of Supervisors, pleaded guilty Monday to accepting bribes, and resigned his position.
