Prosecutors charged Fattah, one of Philidelphia's most powerful political bosses on federal racketeering, fraud, and other corruption charges in July 2015, in a blow to one of America's last remaining big-city political machines.

The congressman continued to serve until December 12, 2016 – two days after a jury convicted him on 23 counts.

Fattah, 62, received a 10-year prison sentence.
