FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- A federal grand jury has indicted former Transportation Secretary Bill Nighbert and contractor Leonard Lawson after a yearlong FBI investigation into alleged bid-rigging on highway construction projects.
Brian Russell Billing, an aide to Lawson, also has been indicted.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Ken Taylor told reporters Wednesday that additional indictments are possible from the federal grand jury meeting in Lexington.
